Hmmm, what if we use a simple properties file to describe them.
port=The port used for communication
host=The host
then we can localize them too. We can have separate files or one per 
"service group".

How to mark a parameter optional (or not) is a good point.
Today I would use annotations for it (e.g. @NotNull) but we have to 
stick with jdk 1.3 for a while.
For now we can put then into another properties file too and provide the 
suggested api to query it, so we can change this to annotations it we 
are able to upgrade.
