Method for building a self-generating nodal network for communicating in a client/server system wherein the method includes the steps of creating a server nodal network tree which includes the steps of generating a server root node which includes both process steps for communicating to an operating system and service nodes, and process steps for building service nodes which correspond to servers within the client/server system, each service node includes both process steps for advertising a service to the server root node and process steps for building a topic node which includes both process steps for accessing a server and process steps for building a job node for storing a job request. The method also includes the step of creating a client nodal network tree which includes the steps of generating a client root node which includes both process steps for communicating to an operating system and client service nodes, and process steps for building client service nodes corresponding to each service node of the server nodal network tree, each client service nodes includes both process steps for communicating to an application program and process steps to create a job request in accordance with a job request designated by the application program, wherein the client service node is receiving a job request from the application program propagates the request back through the client nodal network tree to the server nodal network tree for execution.
