For now we assume users connect to an external deltacloud running locally or remotely.

from what I understand deltacloud today requires native components thus I didn't
even consider bundling it because of the many environments we would have to test/verify it

If deltacloud could run in a pure JRuby setup it might be worth considering...but for
now its external.

Another idea would be if something like jcloud would provide a deltacloud api implementation;
that would probably fit better/easier into a portable java setup. WDYT?

I'll let Jeff answer that ;)

I believe Jeff took the existing Java client library and "mutated" it to be compatible with
the recent changes.

I know there are some issues with that library in context of osgi/eclipse environments so
we might
have some changes for that going forward.
