Yes, I'd thought of Sun's Jini here, part of their Java push -- which IIRC
exposed network (un)reliability and tried to address it through service
lookup and limited-lifetime lease/renew for remote resource access.
Though I'm not sure it went anywhere?

(or how TUHS-relevant this is/was... apologies if not)

Hmm, apparently Jini became Apache River; last release in 2016, then
retired Feb 2022:
