I tend to agree that the JINI model makes things easier to both implement and 
understand. And as you point out, it is somewhat tedious to implement the 
Service and client code, and that could be hidden into a Merlin Facility, BUT 
once again, it requires an Availability contract between the container and 
the components, or components can not have graceful fallbacks if Service is 
no longer available.

Cheers
