From Barnes & NobleYou know a technology is arriving when it gets its own O'Reilly Nutshell guide. Jini is arriving fast—and with it will come networks that can virtually manage themselves, adding and subtracting devices, services, and users without human intervention.
Jini In A Nutshell is two books in one. Part I is a code-rich Jini introduction for experienced Java coders who want to start building Jini software right away. Part II is a 150-page quick reference covering all the key packages that comprise Jini 1.1.
Oaks and Wong start by introducing you to Jini's fundamental concepts, walking you through setting up Jini; and presenting key Jini server and client programming techniques. You'll find chapters on leasing, remote events, service administration, transactions, security, Jini's helper services, even JavaSpaces.
The book's quick-reference encompasses net.jini.core, the basic interfaces of Jini; net.jini (packages that make up the Jini Technology Extended Platform); com.sun.jini (including coverage of some early packages that may change as the specification solidifies); and several directly relevant Java packages.
Now that Jini's far enough along to work with, you might as well be productive. With Jini In A Nutshell, you will be.
