Subject RE: Codebase service?
Date Mon, 24 May 2010 15:01:51 GMT

It is actually possible to register a service that has no *-dl.jar.
It's just that nobody can use it!  We fell into this by mistake when we
forgot to add the interface .class for a new service to its -dl.jar.
Instances of that service could find each other no problem because they
already had the interface.  But to others, it was a stealth service that
always failed to unmarshal.

So primarily Services must have an API jar, and a DL jar as well if 
using a smart proxy.

Did the *-dl.jar came about, as an unwritten convention, or is it 
documented, all Jini / River's *-dl.jar's are smart proxy's so it should

still make sense?
