Jini's distributed 2 phase commit lock implementation is very powerful for doing 
distributed locking.  JGroups can be good for certain kinds of locks.  Dan has 
an example distributed lock application which is good for latches.  I use it for 
creating database domain indexes in an application which I use jini transactions 
to keep multiple instances of postgres synchronized.
