Subject Re: strange problem with DGC

Note that when you export your service it's proxy is stored in 
Marshalled form until the client discovers it, while in Marshalled form 
only, it cannot participate in DGC.  In that case you might want to hold 
a reference for a period of time (Lease), long enough to allow your 
clients to discover the service.

I've had thoughts about OSGi's use of bundle activation and 
deactivation, if a service is implemented in a bundle, the service id 
could be stored to disk on the dedicated area reserved for that 
particular bundle.   Another bundle might manage leases for several jini 
Services that are exported, activating them on demand.  There's always 
Phoenix of course, just some thoughts.
