I have an rmiregistry process running when I execute the main method in this class:

It works perfectly.

This code also works perfectly:

They are the same, except for Line 19. Using the debugger as far as I can, I don't see that these two classes (InitialContext and Naming) rely on the same code, yet (in this application) they do very similar things.

Why are there two ways to bind a registry entry to an object?

What, if anything, would make one preferable to the other?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
