J-Pass and J-Track have been online at the Marshall Spaceflight
Center web site for at least two years already, so I'd hardly
say that NASA "just" [-> "recently"] developed it.  Shrug...

This sort of [(un)intentional] distortion of the facts is not
atypical of mass news media here (USA). :(

I believe Jay posted this just to yank my chain again about the
Java-nese peculiarities of J-Pass and J-Track. :-)
