Amazon Review

Newly enhanced with the latest standards from Sun, Core Jini, 2nd Edition, provides an in-depth and authoritative resource for building state-of-the-art distributed systems based on Jini v. 1.1. Aimed at the experienced Java developer seeking to apply this technology in the field, this book mixes a high-level guide to what Jini is and how it works with plenty of practical code examples to help get you started.

The first part of Core Jini describes what Jini is, including its design philosophy and how it provides robust distributed systems for devices like printers, scanners, and digital cameras. Suitably upbeat about Jini's prospects in the marketplace, the author delivers an insider's perspective on how Jini solves many of the problems of earlier distributed computing. The first hundred pages will help anyone understand Jini and are especially ideal for programmers (or managers) who want to see what this standard is all about.

The rest of the text (over 800 pages) provides a practical tutorial that puts Jini to work, starting with a "Hello World" example. Subsequent chapters cover essential areas of Jini functionality, such as discovery, leasing, and the join protocol. Besides providing actual source code, the book does a good job of showing how to compile and run each example program. (This information is particularly necessary with Jini, where even for testing, programs run in separate pieces in a small distributed system.) Core Jini teaches you the most common programming strategies for Jini (relying on higher-level APIs and built-in features), and also shows the lower-level APIs in separate sections for the more advanced reader who wants to know more.

Armed with this new edition, any Java developer can learn to take advantage of this late-breaking technology from Sun. In all, this title is a comprehensive and well-presented tutorial to an exciting, new standard that will allow future consumer and computing devices to communicate using Java. --Richard Dragan


In 1999, Jini connection technology was unveiled. In 2000, corporations will begin releasing Jini-technology enabled devices, and the demand for expertise in Jini software development will soar. Jini connection technology enables any device -- from enterprise servers to kitchen appliances -- to network smoothly, simply, and reliably. Core Jini, Second Edition delivers the most thorough, practical explanation of Jini 1.1 technology -- plus all the live Java TM code experienced developers need to start building solutions right now! With a Foreword by Sun visionary Bill Joy, Core Jini is 100% authoritative, with even more code, more examples, and more troubleshooting techniques than the first edition -- all fully updated for the new Jini 1.1 technology specification! Discover how Jini technology addresses critical distributed networking problems ignored by "traditional" approaches -- and how it can simplify connectivity in both new devices and existing networks. Master the Jini 1.1 technology programming model, including crucial concepts like discovery, leasing, remote events, and transactions.

Learn real-world techniques for developing Jini technology-enabled helper services and applications; implementing discovery; building lookup services and browsers; and more.
