Why not contact these folks directly. Send them emails and ask for a short
piece.

I have been using JINI since the beginning and have always found it
interesting that people
said that it was a cool project but impractical, too simple and not in
general use. Sun was
about as good at promoting JINI as Google was in Wave Protocol and OT.

It is certianly far better to point out where it has been used (and to what
advantage) than not to
have this section (which seems to be a consideration).  The fact that so
many infrastructure
products from the big players use this is not without value.

In the Java world where frameworks upon frameworks upon more frameworks are
the norm, it is
difficult for many to understand the deceptive simplicity and elegance that
has always been JINI.
