Welcome to Jini Planet!
This page is my repository for links, tips, and information on Sun's
JiniTM distributed computing platform. I've been doing Jini development
since mid-1998 at Xerox PARC, and am the author of
Core Jini, published by Prentice Hall.
This page is an attempt at summarizing some lessons I've learned, as well
as a place to collect bug fixes and errata for the book.
I hope you find this page useful. I'll be expanding it to include new stuff periodically, so check back often.
NEW! Jini Example by Example is now available! The book provides a more tutorial-style introduction to Jini than Core Jini, and has some great new code examples (a Jini file service, a chat application, and others). It was cowritten by Tom Rodden (professor of computer science and distributed systems at the University of Nottingham, UK), and me.
Let me know what you think!
NEW! Core Jini, Second Edition is now available! The book has been fully updated to reflect the final Jini 1.1 release, and has tons more code, new chapters on major features such as the ServiceDiscoveryManager and the new utility services, and way more. Click to go to the book's page on Amazon.com.
Sample chapters are available at the Java Developer's Connection.
Prentice-Hall helped me put together an interactive video course on Jini. Click here for more info.
TALKS! I recently gave an overview talk on Jini for Stanford University's Knowledge Systems Lab at their "Knowledge on the Web" seminar. The slides for that talk are here. I've also got some slides for a shorter talk that I've done at Tandem's opening of their SiliconValley.Library, and at Computer Literacy Books in San Jose. Those slides are here.
