This is (one of) my problem(s) and expect as a hindrance for others in
similar situation.
The mindset alone is not always enough. I feel lucky to finally
have an opportunity for doing real work with River. With no practical
experience with Jini (just read a lot), working alone with no one
knowledgable in the field I am at the mercy of my own capabilities. The
web, mailing lists are of great help, but the pieces of information of
making a _real_ system based on River scarce or non-existent. I am
uncertain what and how I do is the appropriate way of doing things. It
is hard to convince a boss to spend money on consultancy, mentorship
(which I see as the shortest path to get that knowledge) if the thing
is not something "serious" mainstream, but a thing they never even
heard of. Without it the only way is going through the usual hurdles of
self-education which is not bad, but it is full of bitter experiences
and takes times mostly not torelable by a real project, or managers
even if they trust in you. Imagine when they are not even too
supporting...
