Hello,
I'm going through the details of RMI (JRMP) and have following of question.

A Remote Object on server is used by RMI clients and a client reference to a remote object is gurenteed to be valid as the distributed garbage collection algorithm would take care for it.

The Remote Object would not be GCollected until its reference count becomes zero by server side.

But when there is Network Partition between server/client, the premature garbage collection may happen. So, you may have a reference for which referential integrity cannot be gurenteed.

What is 'Network Partition'?


Thanks in advance.

Usually, a network partition means a network failure.Your network is broken into two or more groups, in your case, client may be in a group and server in another.

Hi there,
Thanks for answering it, I also had a same feeling about NP. I suppose its same for every protocol. They will loose references if network is broken
