kad development for a social network
« on: July 17, 2009, 12:25:00 PM »

Hi there,

i'm a student and i'm doing an internship in a school / research centre in the southern France.
currently, we are trying to build a prototype of a decentralized social network, using kad as overlay.
my boss said me that i could find some help looking at the amule source code and trying to extrapolate and adapt the part of the code about kad.
in fact that's what i'm trying to do... but, but:
a - the amule code seems not enough documented
b - i'm not really familiar to c++ code (i prefer java)... but anyway...
c - extrapolate the code from the source is not that easy, given that there are a lot of dependencies (wxwidgets, common functions...) that i am not sure whether i can cut off or not (see point a)

now, what i'm looking for is a simple, plain, kad client source code in c++.
is there anything that could help me..? (like an old version of the source code of amule... or whatever else..?)
i'm [really] desperate and dispirited...

thanks in advance,

j

Hey, check out this topic: http://forum.amule.org/index.php?topic=16999.0

Also try searching with google as I can remember finding an interesting article about a KAD research a few weeks back.

thanks.
i would warmly suggest to write more documentation and possibly trying to develop in a more modular way.

i've another (very stupid) question:
where is the main() function from where typically all begins..?

i know that i'm not really a good c++ programmer, and i don't even know all the tricks that can be made in the makefiles, but this little basic question make me puzzled...

That's inside wxWidgets code. We're using wxApp for application startup/shutdown.

You're welcome to contribute and write as much documentation as you want.

There is also the jmule (google)  project about kad implementation.
