Sun Microsystems intends to formally launch its much-hyped Jini software on 25 January next year, after repeated and planned leaks. Jini is written in Java and based on agent technology that runs in 40K of memory. It enables users to locate and use any device on a network, whether a local area or wide area one, and to change user interface to match the platform they are using at the time. Sun claims it has already signed up a couple of dozen OEMs for the technology.
