Hi all,
Jini and J2me are similar technologies.
Jini has been around for a while but has not gained much popularity also j2me has very limited Api.
So where are we heading ? Any answers??
Regards

They're similar, but different. J2ME is a Java Platform (e.g. JVM) for mobile devices. Jini is protocol and set of APIs for plug and play connectivity. Technically, they have nothing to do with each other. The reality is that I will often bring my mobile device into a new (wireless) network, and want it to interact with that network seamlessly, and that's where bluetooth comes in. We'll definately be seeing bluetooth more on everything from laptops to pagers, where you also find J2ME, rather than on desktops and big iron.

Bluetooh is a network protocol, kind of like TCP.
Jini is a protocol for dynamically building distributed systems, kind of like DNS, or napster.

They work well together because both are designed to work with highly voilatile networks, i.e. networks where nodes are constantly moving in and out of the system.
