I am doing a distributed p2p file sharing system using java2.I am using swing components for designing the user interface. But I am interested in doing the project using J2EE and EJB. I have no idea about how to design an interface using EJBs and to implement network issues using J2EE.Can you provide me a solution

I'm sorry, but the idea of doing a shared file system with EJB is a REALLY, REALLY bad one. Not only would you need an EJB server on each machine (imagine the size of that!) but RMI-IIOP is not the greatest protocol in the world when dealing with firewalls.
Why don't you look into JXTA instead -- they've solved half of your problems for you.
