A definition of terms
« on: November 12, 2014, 04:41:56 am »

Just to get everything straight in my head and for reference.

Jay node: an instance of the JavaScript core of jay.
having many entry points helps to make the network distributed and available for anyone who wants to use it easily.
but this also brings up the issue of verifying the nodes not to spoof the source and steal private keys. This will be mitigated through either a chain of trust verification or a browser plugin that checks source.

each node exists in isolation but needs to be verified before stable use.


consensus servers: the nxt servers with open API ports that the jay nodes poll to get valid nxt data.

plugin: any code loaded by jay from an AM on nxt network and set up to be used with jay.
types -
- library: just any functions
- page: a full page with a side tab, like transactions page in nrs.
- widget: small area on dashboard to display info.
- icon: little icon in top corner with a drop down menu on click.

so basically a user goes to any running jay node. Verifies the source, then jay calls consensus servers to load the plugins and to call the functions the plugins make.
