I'm trying to download the JINI starter kit. I went to jini.org, but all the download links point to java.net and dump me to a Page Not Found.

Does anyone know where I can download this? My googling is coming up with nothing.

Thanks.

You might look at this non-sun implementation.

JINI is now Apache River.

I grabbed River, but I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

Why the change?

Because Jini and JavaSpaces weren't really going anywhere, so Sun lost interest. There was still a committed core community, though.

Ah, okay. Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
