People have been recommending "Managing Gigabytes" to me for years. Has it lost any of its relevance after 4 years of Moore's law, and in the era of practically free storage? Thanks.

Mmmm. JavaSpaces. Be sure to check out the Blitz project ( http://www.dancres.org/blitz/ ) for a "free-er" Jini implementation.

I'm using a tuple-space implementation (but not JavaSpaces) to insert tasks from a Java UI (JSP), and have the messages processed by Python daemons responsible for carrying out the tasks. Then the results are posted back into the tuple-space for the Java application to pick up later.
