This is based on CCSP I assume.

Amen! In trying to figure out how to write certain kinds of programs in
Java, I've had the suspicion that there's little/no "discipline" [excuse
the facistic tone :-)], so that the possibilities for obfuscation (and,
worse, miscommunication) are unbounded. Your comment may mean that my
reaction is not simply the inability of old cortex to assimilate a new
programming "paradigm" (Please muffle the scream :-)).
