How does the Jini Lookup Service differ from other naming and directory services such as LDAP or the RMI registry?

Hi Tushar,

Two primary differences. First, the Jini lookup service stores full-fledged Java objects, not just flat data (the RMI registry has this property though). And, more importantly, the lookup service doesn't simply map a name onto an object. It lets you use the "objectness" of the thing stored in the search (so you can, for instance, search for objects by type, or supertype, or interface, or by the values of particular fields).
Cheers,
