I do not fully understand JINI so hopefully I do not sound too ignorant. I was wondering if JINI is being setup as a standard or if Sun has full control of this technology? What kind of partnerships are currently being developed to make this technology work?
Thank you for any input.

Hi Glade,
Good question!

Jini is released under the latest version of the Sun Community Source License. This means that you have no-cost access to the source and binaries to do, for the most part, anything you want. The only real requirement is that if you plan to release any Jini apps onto the net for "real" use, you have to use the Jini Compatibility Kit to ensure that everything works as advertised. (This is my reading of the license anyway, but I'm not a lawyer so take with a grain of salt.)
Changes, additions, and updates to Jini are controlled through the Jini Community Process. This is an open process where people from various companies using Jini get together and can vote on what goes in and what goes out. See http://www.jini.org for more details about how this works.
I hope this helps!
