jPim is an Open Source effort to implement a PIM library in Java that provides a reuseable business object model for standard personal information and util packages that provide persistency and marshalling/unmarshalling capabilities. The main focus to get started will be contacts & contact management; however if there is enough community interest, the next step is calendar data & calendar management and then anything else that qualifies within a reasonable understanding of "personal information". The developed library should be accessible from any Java executeable context (i.e. Applet, Application, Web Application etc.).

Transaction and redelivery in JMS
During architecture, design, and implementation, you must carefully consider using Java Message Service's (JMS) various transaction options. For a simple approach, you wouldn't use transactions; instead you would use acknowledgement modes, such as automatic, duplicates okay, and client. Another option uses transacted session for sending and receiving messages. Message-driven beans (MDBs) with container-managed transaction demarcation (CMTD) or with bean-managed transaction demarcation (BMTD) provides yet another alternative. This article clearly presents the available transaction options and carefully considers these options' impact on message redelivery. You'll gain a better knowledge of using JMS efficiently and effectively.

Jan Newmarch's Guide to JINI Technologies
Jini grew from early work in Java to make distributed computing easier. It intends to make ``network devices'' and ``network computing'' into standard components of everyone's computing environment. When you buy a new piece of office computing equipment such as a desk lamp, or a new home computer appliance such as an alarm clock, it will not only carry out its ``traditional'' functions but will also join into a network of other computer devices and services. The desk lamp will turn itself off when you leave your desk, informed by sensors in your chair; the alarm clock will tell your coffee maker to switch on a few minutes before it wakes you up.
