Sun prepares to let Jini 2.0 out of the bottle

Sun Microsystems putting the finishing touches to a major upgrade of its Jini networking technology for release at next month's JavaOne developer conference in San Francisco.

The Jini Starter Kit 2.0 is expected to include a security model that will allow servers and devices running Jini to decide whether code downloaded from elsewhere in a network is trustworthy.

Also expected is a new implementation of Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation), called Jini Extensible Remote Invocation (Jeri), which should offer better interoperability with other, non-Jini applications, claimed sources familiar with Sun's plans.

Starter Kit 2.0 is also expected to include new utility classes, new versions of Jini's discovery protocols, and a new service runner framework, the sources said.
