    Press Release:
    (Arlington, Va.) – GroupServe, a leading provider of distributed application technologies, and the leader in Jini-enabled Web services, announced today the establishment of a project to demonstrate Jini technology’s value in developing Web services.

    The project resides at and offers Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and Jini developers a forum for exploring new methods and techniques for writing sophisticated, complex enterprise applications.

    GroupServe also submitted its Services Libraries for J2EE to be evaluated as a basis for standardization within the Jini development community. The service libraries provide simple, self-contained components for Web application and Web service development. GroupServe, leveraging the Web site, will create a repository of computational patterns to assist developers in building applications faster. The project also provides forums to explore how Jini will integrate with J2EE/Enterprise Java Beans(EJB) technology.

"We see tremendous potential in the next few years for a whole new class of solutions to meet the growing demands of application developers.

  2. The Groupserve project includes "J2EE EJB integration," the JCA and Groupserve also has a JSP template aspect as well.

    So what was the question?

    I don't understand the "JINI vs. J2EE" above.

    By the way, another useful link for the GroupServe project appears to be:

    I think that's the one I'll refer as a starting point to identify GroupServe. It has diagrams showing where they believe JINI and Spaces technology fits in to the registry system.

    I think there were some other Spaces projects who address Web services also although I can't remember what they're called at the moment.
