Java, Jini and Jnext -- Reliable Services for the Internet |
Bill Joy, Sun Microsystems
This talk explores the use of Java in distributed computing, and explains the philosophy behind the particular route taken by Java developers. Comparison are given with other popular languages such as C, C++ and Eiffel, and the speaker outlines design choices made in implementing specific class libraries in Java -- some pragmatic, others functional.
The talk then explores the new developments in distributed heterogeneous networking -- involving Jini -- Sun's vision for the future of networks.
