In this article you've learned how to create a simple ServiceUI-based Jini service and how to use services with such ServiceUI-based GUIs from a Swing-based application. We've encountered and examined some of the intricacies of mixing Jini services and Swing applications, and made design decisions based upon them.

The ServiceUI 1.0 specification defines the de facto standard for attaching user interfaces to Jini applications. It is a simple yet powerful framework for developing user-oriented distributed services and applications and, when combined with the Jini service metaphor, it has the potential to change how we view application development in a networked world.
