Jini

Jini from Sun Microsystems provides simple mechanisms that enable devices to plug together and communicate without any planning, installation, or human intervention. Each device provides services that other devices in the community may use. These devices provide their own interfaces, which ensures reliability and compatibility.

Sun has released the Alewife beta Jini Starter Kit, a beta version of its upcoming Jini Technology Starter Kit 1.2. Features include virtual machine sharing using Jini services and a multithreaded implementation of Jini Helper Utilities. Specifications and programming examples are also available.
