Hi - I am compiling rmi code and am not getting a skeleton just a stub. Are skeletons outdated now - I am using JSE 1.5.6...

read the documentation for rmic in the JDK docpack. Skeletons are indeed no longer needed or used. They have in fact been superfluous for years, but the rmi compiler was still creating them by default to provide backwards compatibility with older versions. That's now been reversed and instead of needing an option to not create them you now need an option to create them.
As you don't have to provide for backwards compatibility with 1.1 JVMs there's no need to create and provide skeletons.
