In this paper, the authors propose an object management method in large-scale heterogeneous P2P networks. In the proposed method, objects can be stored in and searched from nodes by considering node's capabilities. The proposed system is based on skip list, and two identifications are utilized; TypeID and HashID. The TypeID is used to specify each node's capabilities, on the other hand, HashID is used for providing load balancing among nodes with similar capabilities. According to the two identifications, message routing for storing and searching objects is performed.
