>From what I've read (and is repeated here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalvik_virtual_machine), Dalvik has its
own bytecodes suitable for a register-based VM. I haven't heard that
it can read Java class files (regardless of the source) directly; I
believe you have to convert them using the dex converter tool.

Even though Android source looks like Java (with some JDK classes
unavailable), for the purposes of Jini, it seems more like just
another foreign language which would need a surrogate to communicate
with Java-based Jini services, no?
