Yes, a fs context provider would make a good addition to directory-naming. 
  The basic ingredients for this are already there in the sources from 
tomcat (see the FileDirContext class in the resources package of 
naming/core).  I am working on repackaging and getting the web site out 
for this component.  I will post a link back to this list when the website 
is out.

Looks like's Sun's "beta" is in fact still available here:

http://java.sun.com/products/jndi/downloads/

For anyone interested in volunteering to help develop (or donate) an fs 
context provider, here is info on the Apache Directory project (includes 
JNDI):

The dev list is:

directory-dev@incubator.apache.org

Sources for both naming and the "Eve" directory server are in the ASF 
Subversion repository, here:

http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/incubator/directory/?root=Apache-SVN

The URI for the Subversion repository is:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/directory

For help getting started with Subversion, first grab a client here:

http://subversion.tigris.org/getting_subversion.html

and then have a look at the docs here:
