And how you would look up your JavaSpace "without Jini"?
Jini by itself doesn't really do anything useful, the services are key -
but that means they have to depend on the foundation. You don't have to
use the foundation if you don't have to, though the Entry interface is a
good example for why things are (and have to be) the way they are.
