>From the erlang jinterface website on class OtpEpmd:

Provides methods for registering, unregistering and looking up nodes with
the Erlang portmapper
daemon (Epmd). For each registered node, Epmd maintains information about
the port on which
incoming connections are accepted, as well as which versions of the Erlang
protocolt the node supports. 

Nodes wishing to contact other nodes must first request information from
Epmd before a
connection can be set up, however this is done automatically by
OtpSelf.connect() when

The methods publishPort() and unPublishPort() will fail if an Epmd process
is not running on
the localhost. Additionally lookupPort() will fail if there is no Epmd
process running on the host
where the specified node is running. See the Erlang documentation for
information about starting

This class contains only static methods, there are no constructors. 

Hope this helps.

#I have (finally! :-) fully connected a Java node to an Erlang one. I however wonder why the Java node doesn't appear in the nodes() list...
