Subject Jini Tutorials (was: RE: Jini.org)
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2009 14:53:48 GMT
Hi Jeremy,

I'm in the process of (*) writing a Jini tutorial that glosses over a lot of the complexities.
 It's in the style of "I don't care what an exporter or end-point is I just want to know the
minimum steps required to get 'hello world' written on the console".

I've had very little time recently to dedicate to it which is why I've not been making any
noises.  What's your time scale like?  What are your specific needs?  I can see if I can get
some basic points down to help you out over the weekend or next week if that's in any way

Failing that, there's some good papers linked from here; http://www.jini.org/wiki/Category:Getting_Started.
 Dan Creswell's in particular, although this does go into some detail on exporters etc which
may or may not be helpful when you just want something more basic.

Good luck,


(*) - This phrase sounds better than "I've done about 1% of"

I agree with Patrick that a minimum the site needs to be redirected to the
Apache River site. If that is going to happen then we need to get as much
content as possible over to the Apache site.

On another note; I am looking for a good Hello World Style Jini Tutorial. I
am currently working for a company called click2try.com and I would like to
use Jini/River as a demo for our ability to help developers learn new
software. You can see what we have right now at click2try.com. If anybody
has something like that tutorial or can suggest additional or another
tutorial that would be great. If all goes well I will open up the Virtual
Machine and people can try out Jini/River with out having to download,
configure, and setup.
