I implemented the factory pattern as these:
1. The FactoryImpl is registered with the rmiregistry
2. The client requests a reference to a Factory
3. The rmiregistry returns a remote reference to a FactoryImpl
4. The client invokes a remote method on the FactoryImpl to obtain a remote reference to a ProductImpl
5. The FactoryImpl returns a remote reference to an existing ProductImpl.
6. The client invokes a remote method on the ProductImpl to run a testing object's method on the server side.
Note: the FactoryImpl and the ProductImpl are remote objects. My enviroment is : Windows2000, single PC, use file url, server and client
run in two seperated DOS_like windows.
But above cann' work. If I modify the ProductImpl and the test object to implements Serializable, then it work! But the ProductImpl just works on client side instead of server side! I know the reason: the copy instead of remote reference of the two object be passed !
Problems are:
1. Must ProductImpl extend UnicastRemoteObject like FactoryImpl does?
2. Myst ProductImpl implements Serializable?
3. How should I modify it to make it work correctly?
Could you help me?

1. Given the framework you're using, yes and no. ProductImpl must be exported but could use the static method UnicastRemoteObject.exportObject() instead of extending the class.
2. If it's a parameter, yes. If it's its own exported thing, then no.
3. Use Jini to do this instead. You'll save yourself a lot of hassles.
