I just wanted to point out that the June 24 edit from an anonymous account at 138.246.18.220 is an opinion (rather than fact), inappropriate, and probably off topic as well. I didn't want to go changing things, since I'm just a passer-by, but I did want to bring it to the attention of those who are more involved in maintaining this article than I. 129.34.20.19 (talk) 21:13, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm a bit concerned about possible copyright violations here eg. http://wwws.sun.com/software/jini/overview/ Please justify this. Aldie 13:12 Feb 20, 2003 (UTC)

I would like have a button and/or section for pre-publish articles, where the user can add information from different webpages. Later, the user can create the article. talk

This is a lack for this Jini article. From where can one obtain information about JINI??. Evidently from Sun and the open community. I would like include this Jini article in the pre-publish feature of JINI.

Later, one can erase part, add comments or introduce original sources. What about an article with bad information about JINI???.

Current Status[edit]

Per this article, Jini is being (has been?) transferred to Apache. A google search for Jini yields very little, and most articles are hype from 99-01. Why has this technology seemingly fallen flat on its face? Should there be any mention of any of this? A decade ago, this was the best thing since sliced bread. Now it's difficult to find any information on it, and I've yet to discover an instance where it has been implemented. I'd add this stuff, but frankly I don't know the answer to any of it.

According to a passing reference at [1], Microsoft's Universal Plug and Play somehow disrupted the plans. 95.222.155.65 (talk) 04:07, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
That brings me to another question. When I read about Jini, I find myself getting two different definitions of it. One is that Jini is another plug-and-play type service for connecting peripherals. Another definition basically says it's a type of SOA. So which is it? I mean, there are parallels between the two, but the applications of each are totally different. One is for everyday users connecting things to their machine and the other is a tool for developers in creating distributed systems. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.46.198.231 (talk) 18:00, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
As I understand it, Jini is intended for both hardware and software plug and play, and is being used for both.Robert (talk) 02:19, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Jini birth[edit]

"Sun introduced Jini on July, 1998. On November from the same year Sun announced that there were some firms already supporting Jini.". This information was stated by José Manuel Estrada from Sun on November 4th, 1998, at Lotus Symposium 8 hosted in Madrid, Spain. As I recall, this July 1998 date was meant for "first released" rather than "started development". -Ignacio Agulló. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.32.84.62 (talk) 09:56, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Real world applications[edit]

This article lacks information on real world applications. A web search will find you lots of simple Jini example code but I can't find anything that documents real-world use of Jini in production systems. The JavaSpaces page makes some mention of JavaSpaces (a technology that builds on Jini) being used in the financial and telco industries, but how about plain Jini (without JavaSpaces)? If anyone knows of any such examples please add them in a new section to this article. Robert (talk) 02:25, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

OSGi?[edit]

How does Jini relate to OSGi (if at all)? Does OSGi largely replaced Jini? It seems to service many of the same purposes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.155.126.226 (talk) 09:25, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
