I'm not precluding that .. that's why I said "logically" remote. We can
of course allow arbitrary services to be dropped into Synapse but that
will confuse the mission of Synapse. Do you agree?

What I feel is its better to keep Synapse focused on the mediation
function and keep pure services logically remote .. that means they get
dropped in a different location (on the file system) and get deployed
into a separate AxisConfiguration object and you look at them with a
different URL ( instead of So when you look at it from the
outside the mediation agent is separate from the service runtime but
they could all be in the same JVM.
