There are some similarities on the ideas, but JINI (as far as people 
explained it to me when I was working @ Sun) is supposed to be 
completely distributable on multiple network nodes. And I don't think 
that as far as Cocoon is involved, someone would want to distribute a 
single instance across multiple machines now...

Plus JINI includes all that all "Rendezvous-like" discovery protocol 
which is so friggin' cool! :-P
