Subject Dynamically configuring instances
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 02:37:58 GMT
Hi Guys,

I am trying to use Helix in a system where the "instances" start up and 
listen on a free port that is not pre-configured before the application 
starts -- This is done so that the application does not rely on the 
availability of specific ports. As a result, the instance name (host, 
port) are not known upfront. However, Helix requires that the instance's 
name be created in Helix before it connects. Any ideas to get out of 
this situation? Is there a way to tell Helix to create an instance on 
receiving a connection from an instance?
