Well the general idea was to make it compatible with Apache Tomcat (and possible achieve some RAM savings as an added bonus).
I used a home-brewed tool to fetch the command lines of any and all processes named "java.exe" in August.
What got me pondering was that 7* of the 8 instances in the default original configuration are half-indentical or they all load the same common files with the difference of a small selection of a PY file or TXT file on each one.
In matters with responders, the "agenttype" switch wasn't listed on all of them. If multiverse plugins are on a "subscription" model, it sounds like each plugin is like a listener tuned in to a radio station but with bi-directional communication, so I wouldn't have thought a conflict like that could happen, it's like in-house IP-UDP.
I hope i'm making sense on all of this.
*I left the DomainServer out because I had NetBeans study the available entry points of multiverse.msgsys.DomainServer but a plug-in option isn't available.
