 '''Question:''' '''["UsingJNDIToObtainHiveMindServices"]''' (DanielFeist 24/06/2004)  
 I have been experimenting with the use of JNDI as a facade to !HiveMind by implementing a
simple JNDI SPI.  The ''lookup'' method of a JNDI ''Context'' takes just a ''Name'', yet to
obtain a !HiveMind service i need to be able to specifiy the interface expected.  What i have
found is that i can, in place of the interface expected put {{{Object.class}}} and everything
works ok.  ''Object'' is not an interface so i'm not quite sure why this works.  Is this intentional?
 Will !HiveMind continue to support this?
+'''Accepted Answer:'''
+HowardLewisShip: Yes, passing {{{Object.class}} will continue work although but it is not
recommended in ''normal'' cirmcumstaces.  The idea of passing in the expected (assignable)
type is to allow HiveMind to do a check that the service object or proxy returned is assignable.
Better a good message from inside HiveMind than a bad ClassCastException. Using java.lang.Object
is acceptible if you don't care about that test.
