The J9P development framework is designed to ease the integration of legacy or non-9P services into 9P networks. Plan9 (and Inferno) introduced a paradigm for services in networked environments where every service is mapped to file operations in a virtual namespace that is published by the server that provides the service (either locally or remote). The J9P framework provides a generic 9P server that publishes such "virtual" namespaces to clients. J9P namespaces are defined in a configuration file and are assembled from directories (branches) and files (leaves).
