Why should my remote object extend UnicastRemoteObject?

Hi,

This link says "your object will be automatically exported for RMI access" but is not this accomplished by extending Remote?

So can someone explain in a little more details what is the purpose of extending UnicastRemoteObject (you will get UnmarshalException if you don't), and what is the purpose of implementing Remote interface.

thanks in advanced.

Ok I think got it...
UnicastRemoteObject allows the remote object to be accessible (allows the object to be written on the stream) to the moethods defined in Remote interface.
