I'm still relatively new to Java, and am trying to get a basic grasp on what the whole RMI stuff is, so bare with me
When reading several books that touch on topics like servlets and JDBC, I haven't come across anything relating to policy files. However, in Java Server Programming, the 2nd chapter relies quite heavily on policy files and security managers. Basically, I'm curious when you are going to really need to use policy files, and if you do need them, how are you supposed to deploy all of these files to everyone within a corporation? I know about software distribution, but you seem to have to run command line keytools and security registers.
If someone has implemented this kind of technology before and can give just a basic example of how it is done, I would greatly appreciate it! Just trying to get an overall view before trying to delve into the depths.
Also, for someone starting to learn J2EE, would it be best to maybe focus on JDBC, servlets, and JSP's, and then move into the RMI and CORBA stuff?
