About the j2ee service class
This class is a simple one that takes in a single parameter, either start or stop. This parameter tells the class how to behave.
start mode: In this mode, the class simply creates a new instance of org.jboss.cache.TreeCache, starts it as a service, and binds it in JNDI.
stop mode: In this mode, the class retrieves the TreeCache from JNDI and stops the caching service.
Note that the TreeCache takes care of discovering other TreeCaches in the cluster and replicating. This is all configured in the jboss-cache configuration XML.
