Does anyone know of any companies actually using Jini? What are they using it for? Since this technology came out I've been impressed by the possibilities for it but I've seen no real uses of it. It doesn't seem to have caught on, despite the fact that everyone's trying to get a million different devices to work together.

I have fiddled with JavaSpaces from time to time - cool technology but I have never found a commercial use.

Like William, I'm interested in the technology and I think it's a cool concept, but I've yet to do more than read some basic material on it or fiddle on a very surface level with it. There's just not much call for it in what I do on a daily basis - maybe that'll change in the near fugure, but I'm not quite certain of that.

There is an updated Jini book from Apress coming out, from my preliminary glance at their upcoming books page, so who knows...

I worked on a project a few years ago at a defense contracting company that was using Jini for managing different devices for a radio/communications room. Jini is being used by other people too - but it's not as 'public' a technology as J2EE - Jini usually runs on a controlled network, not 'in the open' on the Internet. It's great as an 'RMI on steroids' sort of technology that lets a wide array of services/objects talk to each other.
