Hi Konrad,

what kind of network topology sits between both hosts? If both are on
the same subnet, a multicast-based discovery provider like jmdns or jSLP
will do. For wide-area discovery, you will need Zookeeper or DNS-SD.
If hard-coded IPs are good enough, you might wanna look into file based


P.S.: What's the problem with Zookeeper and ServiceMix?
