I like all references to the (now) eternal Red Pill. I loves the Red Pills. They keep me spry and handome.
I also like all things and people that are wise enough to diss JBI/BPM/Web Services in one sentence. Now that is a skill.
Mind you I have heaps to learn about Jini and JavaSpaces. Just saying I like this sentence.
All I know is WS-* is dead, REST doesn't cut it for (a lot of) the stuff I do, and I know enough already about the problems with ESBs and Messaging. I want some new problems to deal with. Or at least I want to fix a couple problems. No idea where it will go at this point.
I will say that I am going to be really pissed at Sun if Jini does turn out to be great. I mean I lived through 5 years (5 years!!!) of J2EE - all of it - even CMP!! If Jini is heaps better and Sun put me through that misery just because they totally botched the marketing campaign around Jini then I'm going to be a little upset.
