Can somebody explain what does the reliability in JxtaBidiPipe mean? What is the difference when this attribute is set to true and false?

Best regards, Filip

BiDi Pipe uses a a "Reliable" Input and output stream. This effectively has a message window which can replay messages if any dropped. (somthing like TCP windowing). This is required since a message can be routed in may different directions.

Key to not that in 2.5 it is not reliable over a relay. Fixed in 2.6.

However, sockets that also use the "Reliable" streams do work over relays.
