I would like to from you, a personal opinion about a question related to the Jini Vision.Most of the articles written about Jini Technology Vision speak a lot about the Jini on embedded systems and services offered by devices. In my opinion, JINI not only can give advantages in this kind of environment. I think that JINI provides the necessary infrastructure to give a distributed system the possibility of offer Value-added Services. I am going to try explain this better. I am working in IBIT, a foundation in Balearic Islands, and we have been working in an European project called InTouriSME as a Federate database system. The main aim of the system is to provide a common access point (as a portal) for the all tourism information. We have more or less between 40 -50 local or regional servers of tourist information federated in the whole system. I think that JINI Architecture is the necessary and possibly perfect infrastructure in order to convert this system, not only in a database federation but a services federation as well. What do you think about it? Why the main focus of Jini vision always is related with devices (printers, cellular mobiles,etc..)? I would like only to have an opinion about it?
