Jini and Rendezvous have little in common. They both support service discovery and that is about it. Rendezvous does nothing to solve many of the interesting networking problems when dealing with networked services. Allocation of service resources with leasing, availabilty of servcies with activation, dealing with service events, and distributed transactions are all dealt with in Jini and decidedly not in Rendezvous. With Rendezvous the application or OS must understand the service protocol or SOL. There are *NO* protocols with Jini. At least none you would see in dealing with a Jini service. So after all these years all we get is sevice discovery? Excuse me for being less than impressed.


When you say Rendezvous got it right, you must mean that Apple just did a better job of putting a lesser technology to more visible and actual use.
