hi,
Is it necessary to implement an HTTP server in RMI? I want to be sure aabout this as most of the documentation available is relaated to HTTP server.
Thanks,
Anil

Hi AnilS,
No.You can use any valid URL protocol such as HTTP, file or ftp . You can set codebase property to handle any one of these protocols. HTTP is a preferred way as it makes things easy by providing an automated mechanism for downloading class files.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Milind

Milind,
Could you please explain exact steps required to test RMI using File:// URL ? I was trying to test an RMI application using file:// URLs for codebase but was unsuccessful. I was able to run RMI applciation using the minimal class server from Sun. But I would like to understand the details of using file:/// URL also.
All the tutorials I read do confirm that we can use file:/// URL as server's codebase if both RMI server and client are running on the same machine. But all of them have examples only on HTTP:// codebase and most of the time using applets only.
If I use HTTP URL, HTTP server dynamically downloads the _stub and other class files from server's codebase to RMI client right ? With file:/// URL as codebase, is there still a need to download the .class files to client JVM ? if yes how does it take place ?
Thanks for your help,
Mahesh H.
