Hi all,
I went to this wonderful site which was pointed out by Milind Kulkarn of java ranch, This was pointed out to me in this place under subject name "RMI Tutorial". But I have some questions ?
what is a ".all" file extention. My computer doesn't recognize ".all" extentions, becuase when I try saving the "policy.all" file, I get a "policy.all.txt" and that's the only problem I'm having.
Do I have to install some software in order for my computer to recognize ".all" files. Also I've got a win98 OS and I'm working on JDK 1.3, so I would like to ask if I need to install a server to work on my own RMI, if so, should it be the tomcat server ?
By the way, I have a clear Idea about the concept of RMI, thanks to javaranch participants.

The policy.all files is in fact a text file. What ever you are using to look/edit the fiel with wants to save it as a text file. In the save dialog pox you must select the *.* all files selection if it is there. Not the *.txt files selection. Then it will allow you to save it as policy.all. The .all file is not associated with any standards on 98 box, like .txt is a text file, a .doc is Word document, a .all is ambiguios and isn't associated with anything. If all else, go to a DOS propmpt and go to the directory where you want to create the .all file and type 'edit policy.all' then type in the data you want in the file then save the file. And you will have the policy.all file.

Thanks a whole bunch jeff. The program is finally working. By the way, I don't think I have a server in my OS (win98), do I have to install a server ?
Becuase my next step is trying to access my code through another machine via the internet.
If you know any website or book that'll help me on this, then drop a line here.
Thanks again, I'm really that my program is working
