RE: [decentralization] JXTA plumbing...

level protocol but a whole lot lower than Schemas. I'm not sure just how to
classify JXTA...to me it is more like a C++ template Class.

some APIs yourself.
This is the biggest difference in the attitude towards developers
between JXTA and HailStorm: Microsoft calls even the schema that
defines HailStorm interactions 'plumbing', whereas Sun thinks of http
as too high in the stack to implement within JXTA.
