The Java Network File System

In this paper we introduce the Java Network File System (JNFS), a network file system for NCs. We offer this alternative for two reasons. First, since the NCRP does not require a file system and lower-end NCs do not provide one, JNFS fills this need. Second, since JNFS provides a network file system interface to a host's native file system, all NCs can access file systems other than NFS.
