  Jini as a foundation technology
for pervasive system
    Executive summary  

One criterion for a pervasive system to be successful is to be simple and based on a well-known technology, which easily could be extended for specific applications. The Jini software system seams to cover the fundamental infrastructure between actors in such systems. Jini is an extension to the Java application environment, thus the API is well known and widely accepted.

The goal is to outline the possibilities and limitations of the Jini technology as a basic architecture for pervasive systems. It should also be determined to what extend the conceptual definitions from general pervasive systems will fit with the concepts of Jini. To support the conceptual considerations for the Jini system, a concrete implementation of a prototypical application as an example of a pervasive system based on Jini will have a central role in the project.
