A lot ! Some people argued that sockets are better solution however RMI approach is so much easier and has number of advantages ( these things You can argue back and forth) and I would suggest You and anyone to go with it. Initially I thought of doing it with sockets because at the time I didn't know how RMI works, however if You take little bit of time to learn RMI, You will understand it's benefits and that it is the way to go.
