In this paper we report on a study of the Jini technology for design of spontaneous networks offering services dynamically. We identify important design criteria such as flexibility, efficiency, dependability and transparency in the architectural design of spontaneous networks and illustrate how these criteria affect the specific design of a contact service offered within a Jini network. We explain the architectural design of the contact service, the lessons learned, and the future directions for research in extending the Quality of Service (QoS) and dependability enforcement in Jini networks. The report also includes a brief comparison with other current technologies for similar networks.
