Limitations

Parick Logan: "Bonjour is zero config. Have you seen the Jini configuration mechanism?"

I remember whining about Jini setup a few years ago. "No wonder Jini doesn't get used", I said. I caught a lot of stick for that. It's improved since then - "Jini up in non-geological time", I said Granted, post titles like that don't win hearts and minds.

Bonjour/zeroconf seems to be a limited discovery protocol in the same way bittorrent is a limited p2p protocol. Jini clearly does more. Maybe limited is a good thing.
