Jini and the Grid
There is an increasing interest in integrating Javabased, and in particular Jini systems, with the emerging Grid infrastructures. In this paper we explore various ways of integrating the key components of each architecture, their directory and information management services. In the first part of the paper we sketch out the Jini and Grid architectures and their services. We then review the components and services that Jini provides and compare these with those of the Grid. In the second part of the paper we critically explore four ways that Jini and the Grid could interact, here in particular we look at possible scenarios that can provide a seamless interface to a Jini environment for Grid clients and how to use Jini services from a Grid environment. In the final part of the paper we summarise our findings and report on future work being undertaken to integrate Jini and the Grid.
