Funny. I was just reading the FAQ for JSR-10, the preferences API:

"Q: How does this API relate to JNDI?
A: Like JNDI, it API provides back-end neutral access to persistent key-value
data. JNDI, however, is far more powerful, and correspondingly heavyweight.
JNDI is appropriate for enterprise applications that need its power. This API
is intended as a simple, ubiquitous, back-end neutral preferences-management
facility, enabling any Java application to easily tailor its behavior to user
preferences and maintain small amounts of state from run to run."

Seems like at least one other group is going for the easy-to-use,
less-heavyweight goal...
