I thought you said it ran on Google App Engine. Why does it need a local
JVM? Or does it have both components? How does it handle the case of the
one not being able to contact the other? Haven't you just created an
extra layer of complexity?

I'll admit I'm not that familiar with App Engine, so I could be missing
something here.
