Peter Firmstone commented on RIVER-14:
--------------------------------------

The project has been removed from java.net any chance Bob can donate the code?

> An aggregate endpoint for Jini ERI stack as is available through [Bob Scheifler's hacks|https://user-rscheifler.dev.java.net]
is important in an environment where you want to export your service allowing for both Kerberos
and TLS based security, for more context information I refer to the  [discussion|https://user-rscheifler.dev.java.net/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=3]
at Bob's project.
> Bob's implementation *as is* is pretty uninteresting at the moment as it doesn't come
with an accompanying trust verifier. The use case in the discussion also demonstrates that
there is no proper way to get the trust verifier to the client side in a way that is likely
going to succeed (assuming security to be important). To me this implies a trust verifier
for an aggregate endpoint must be locally available, hence my reference to "part of the Platform"
in the summary.
> Although I could incorporate such a trust verifier as part of my own Platform definition
this is not going to help interoperability between client and servers in a mixed environment
rendering it pretty useless.
