  • Jini technology for decision-makers
  • Concepts, applications, advantages, and limitations
  • Solutions for device and enterprise connectivity

The complete briefing on Jini technology!

With Sun's Jini architecture, virtually any type of service (software component and device) can interact—without worrying about complex protocols, messaging, drivers, operating systems, or cabling. Finally, there's a complete briefing for decision-makers who want to know what it can do for them now—and what it will do for them tomorrow. In Jini Technology: An Overview, Ilango Kumaran covers everything professionals need to know about Jini technology—its goals, applications, advantages, limitations, how it works, and where it's headed next. Kumaran covers all this, and more:

  • What Jini technology is—and what it isn't
  • How Jini technology systems work
  • Integrating Jini technology with other enterprise and distributed technologies such as J2EE/EJB, .NET/COM, CORBA, and DCOM
  • Jini technology versus competing and overlapping technologies such as UPnP, eSpeak, JetSend, Chai, CoolTown, and other UDDI/HTTP/SOAP-based Web service technologies
  • Jini technology as a solution for pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • The state of industry support for Jini technology

Whether you're an executive, architect, strategist, or investor, Jini Technology: An Overview will help you intelligently evaluate Jini technology—and leverage it for maximum competitive advantage.
