The RMI activation framework, together with the Jini Helper Services introduced in version 1.1 of the JSK, provides the developer with the necessary tools to satisfy these requirements; this allows Jini services to be highly available. Developers will undoubtedly invent many ingenious patterns for using these, and future, tools. I would like to invite those interested in sharing ideas to contribute descriptions of use patterns that make Jini services -- implemented in hardware and software alike -- highly available in Jini federations.

Frank Sommers is the founder and CEO of Autospaces, a startup focused on bringing Jini technology to the automotive software market. He has been programming in Java since 1995, after attending the first public demonstration of the language on the Sun Microsystems campus in November of that year. His interests include parallel and distributed computing, the discovery and representation of knowledge in databases, and the philosophical foundations of computing. When not thinking about computers, he composes and plays piano, studies the symphonies of Gustav Mahler, and explores the writings of Aristotle and Ayn Rand. Sommers would like to thank John McClain of Sun Microsystems for his valuable comments on this article.
