Re: What is the difference between Jini and .NET?

.NET is a service development and deployment platform. It is similar to J2EE platform in Java Speak.
Jini is a dynamic distributed architecture for building "dynamic service networks" or "service communities". These communities can have services developed using any service platform such as .net, J2EE, CORBA.
For more information on the differences between these technologies or to know as how to integrate a .net service within a Jini community look at the recently published book "Jini Technology - An Overview" by "S. Ilango Kumaran".

the .NET is basically a platform made to counter J2EE/CORBA. It provides much of the funtionality like transactional components and integration of XML/SOAP like its counterparts.
However JINI, though built on a JAVA platform is a new programming paradigm in distributed computing. It elevates distributed computing to a new level where programs(called "services") can host itself and be automatically discovered and then used by "clients". Clients can also look for services based on "proximity" of services on the network. This community forming and discovering feature is added by the JINI spec.
However JINI relies on the JAVA feature to safely download and execute a code remotely.
