J. Waldo ; Sun Microsyst., Burlington, MA, USA

The author briefly describes some of the Jini networking system's features and attempts to show how this system's assumptions differ from those used to construct other distributed system frameworks. The author then characterizes mobile agent systems, showing such system's intrinsic differences from Jini and some of their basic problems. Finally, he discusses how agent systems could use the Jini system approach to solve some of these intrinsic problems.
