The tree is organized in a file-system like manner. A so called file is build of a value and meta information like user and group id, read/write/mutable information, time information of last change, textual description. A file's value set up as writable may be overwritten by a client, a file's value set up as mutuable may be subscribed by a client. Possible value types are primitive types and arrays of them mentioned above. Beside, the value type may be of type folder, queue, mountpoint.
A folder is just a list of files (which of course may contain folder values). A client which subsribes to a folder is informed about structure changes, i.e. adding or removing of files.
A queue is on server side just a data sink the server or some client may put arbitrary files (folders) to. This file objects are send to all clients which subsribed to the server queue.
A mountpoint is just a special file containing IP host and port information of another uv server. A client can use this information to mount those services to the original file tree.
