Hi Utsav,

Thanks for your interest in Barrelfish.

To answer your technical questions:

1) yes, we support TCP/IP communication including NFS. We also have a 
web server in Barrelfish. However, your need to make sure that you use 
one of the supported NICs (Intel 1G and 10G cards are a good way to go)

2) We do not support Java officially, however there was work [1] on a 
JVM for Barrelfish. There is no support for Node JS. You will need to 
port it yourself (we have a POSIX compat layer).

A good way to start would be our public wiki [2] or the Barrelfish 
documentations [3].
