1.  I remember reading that the new 1.4 has support for IPv6, IPv4 is also there (old junk)

2.  Look at the java.net package and the socket class.  Most of the resolution is already performed for the sockets.  

3.  Check out the javatutorial at sun.  http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/networking/index.html

within the networking theme you can also get into RMI, CORBA, web services and

1) I dont think you can directly affect the packet format because the Java API handles the details of IP protocol for you.  i.e. it creates or parses IP headers as required so you only have to worry about the application level data.

2) You can use the java.net.DatagramPacket and java.net.DatagramSocket classes to send data using the UDP protocol (connectionless, non stream based).

3)There are examples at java.sun.com for both conection oriented and conectionless communication.




Cheers,
Steve.
