Java Reliable Multicast (JRM) Service can be used by information distribution applications as the transport for delivery of content to very large constituencies. As compared to unicast protocols (i.e., HTTP), reliable multicast enables broadcasting to groups of receivers, ensuring bandwidth conservation and timely delivery. TRAM, a reliable multicast transport protocol developed along with the JRM Service, is designed for high scalability, targeted at very large numbers of receivers. The JRM Service includes new services for multicast address allocation and management of channels, as well as a dynamic filtering mechanism that uses Java software classes which are pushed into the network for the purpose of interpreting the data downstream from the server.
