Sorry, i was unclear. I think i was expressing that i prefer to code it 
in Jini services, instead of DDNS etc. This is only for the prototyping 
phase. I've noticed that i can work much faster when everything is java 
and nothing is unmodifiable. When it works, and behaves like expected 
then we can refactor it to fit the DDNS service, and put in a factory 
for the implementation to enable to switch between DDNS and the Java Ref 
Implementation. Much easier for testing and other bench activities. As 
we can code the ref. impl. in any form we want, we can also detect 
mismatches between the DDNS and what we need, early during development.
