Because I don't really know the nature of the project. If people want to do 
everything by hand, then a listening socket in java is fine. The good thing 
about a server in between is that the PD patch and java program can be 
disconnected and reconnected at will without any fuss. Put a loadbang on the 
connect message for the netsend and all you have to do is launch the patch 
and then launch your java program. I don't know, it just makes sense to me to 
have something that's constantly active, in between.
