Max Headroom-esque political short.

Got this from the BNL blog -- very amusing. While watching it, it struck me that W always appears to be constantly unsure of what he's saying; it's almost as if he doesn't believe he's getting away with it. The smug grin arrives when he thinks he has... it always comes across to me as conceit though.

Cool. The rebirth of mobile code. Hmm, what would happen if you build Jini from Javascript instead of Java? If using Rhino/a JVM, you could still get the transports and security on a Java node, but with availability on .NET too (I'm assuming there's a sane Javascript engine for .NET outside of the IE gui layer).

Using javascript would make getting continuations easier too for distributed workflow / stateful apps.

So we could build a Jini network using web services for the transport (just to be en vogue, though plain http for browsers might be more interesting) with the code being Javascript to keep it dynamic and platform independent. Cool, something to chat about at the upcoming Jini meeting.

JMS/async testing from Cedric

This thing just gets scarier.

Cool - a JavaSpace based project for event driven matching. I wonder how many other commercial products are using this stuff.

Like many people, I find Jini and Spaces interesting, but there's always something that stops me thinking it's a great match for a production system (esp given all the controls that means in a big company). It's going to be a real challenge for the community to define best practices to overcome such issues. I'm hoping to attend the Jini Community Meeting in London to ask about this type of issue.

New ajdt release: 1.2.0M1. Must go try it out. Nice visualiser changes.
