Jini - a new book and a clear interview

Do you want to learn about Jini? Here are two resources for you.

First of all, there's a new book, Foundations of Jini 2 Programming by Jan Newmarch, based on his online tutorial.

Second, at Java Posse there's a 3-part podcast interview with Van Simmons, leader of the ComputeCycles project. Van talks about his grid-computing project and, along the way, gives a particularly clear summary of Jini and how a cabal on Wall Street is preventing you from knowing just how powerful it is.  :)

Update: Here's another presentation by Van Simmons from JavaOne 2006 that goes into more detail on ComputeCycles.
