> Dose Wap technology come under Jini technology

WAP is wireless application protocol.. Ie. its an protocol..

Jini is an 'structural' for services to communicate through without regard to the protocols..

From Jini FAQ @

4. How does Jini technology work?

The Jini architecture lets programs use services in a network without knowing anything about the wire protocol that the service uses. One implementation of a service might be XML-based, and another RMI-based, and a third CORBA-based. The client is, in effect, taught by each service how to talk to it. A service is defined by its programming API, declared as a Java programming language interface.
