3.4 Late Binding Insulates Developers

Jini technology promotes late binding of APIs so that developers are insulated from the API implementation. Late binding occurs when an interface that is used during programming doesn't have to know the actual implementation that will bind to that interface during runtime. The implementation is said to be late binding to the interface. The use of late-binding interfaces to underlying protocols means that protocols are unnecessary at the application programming level, which frees the developer from the complexity of keeping the protocol layer up to date.
