Hi Leo,

Thanks for your comments.

JAX-RPC 1.1 does not support asynchronouse calls however JAX-RPC 2.0
does support it. There is a Technology Preview of JAX-RPC 2.0 standards
implementation available at [1] but there is no corresponding
documentation to explain the programming model, yet. You can consider
looking at JAX-RPC 2.0 spec [2] and write your client-side code to
achieve callback and polling mechanisms.

An Early Access of JAX-RPC 2.0 is expected to be released in next few
weeks which will accompany numerous samples and documentation so that
will serve your needs better.
