create jar files and location of stub classes

I have decided to create 2 jar archives for the client and
for the server.
When I want a remote reference to the server, I have to tell the
registry where to find the stub class.
My stub class is in the server jar, and this cannot be used
for URLs.
My question is, is there a possiblity to store the stub class
in a jar file, or should I not create any jar files?

Hi Marco -
You certainly can store stubs in a JAR. They're just class files after all.
One thing I encourage my students to do is run rmic with the -keepgenerated flag. This option retains the .java source that's used to compile the stubs. Once you see the source of a stub, you'll see it's nothing magical at all. rmic is just a code generator (and compiler)!
