I think they complement. In a design process where you have non-agile 
interface definition (like commitee meetings), or unlimited platform 
combinations, there is nothing to gain to use jini. When you need agile 
interface definitions that integrate thightly with the language type 
constraints, then there is lots to gain to use jini.

I especially like the agility when during development introducing an 
extra class, to split previous combined functionality in a single class, 
into a dual (1-n related) class combination.
