Hello to All....
Can anyone tell me about the fact related to RMI. It's applicable to only Homogenous Environment or it can be useful to Heterogenous Environment...If not then which thing we will use for heterogenous environment.....
And what about its scope in sense of LAN or WAN...it is applicable to both or not......
ok
Bye

Hey, I think I understand what you are asking, but if I'm way off please forgive me.
RMI can only be used to communicate between remote computers running java programs, as opposed to remote computers running different languages and communicating via some agreed upon structure. Have to get some of the other guys to suggest something for the RPC communications between differing program languages as I haven't had to use any of them yet.
The scope of RMI is potentially global. You can RMI back to your own machine, a machine in the next room, or a machine on a different continent. Its all IP and port based. I'v used RMI to watch a lot of data update every half second from a big steam turbine 15 miles away. Scope is what you want it to be.
Hope this was at least some help.
Chris
