For now the API has a ContainerProvider class that can use the service loader mechanism to load
different implementations of the Client and Server containers. This will be ok for the Java SE client
API, but probably not for Java EE.

We will explore other mechanisms in the Java EE case. Perhaps making the ServerContainer a CDI managed bean that can
be injected into developer code, perhaps into a ServletContext initializer, for example. Or an annotation that the web
container must scan for that indicates that a given class implementing one of the Container interfaces must be loaded at

Some notes on client-side and server-side deplotment

Server Side
automatic POJO scanning
No scan for Endpointsubclass, programmtically deploy
deploy method should work for POJO

Client Side
no scan, programmtic deployment (client needs to control when to connect)
programmtic POJO deployment.

We have added the appropriate client deployment API for POJOs and Endpoints and adjusted the server API for deployment. The spec document has been updated for the WAR scanning for POJOs.
