Short answer NO
RMI uses sockets, you need Threads because your chat program will have to handle both user input and watch for chat messages. (obscure-refrence)there is no royal road to chat(/obscure-reference)
There are many many ways to implement distributed chat in Java.
Personally I think the Java Message Service is an excellent choice.
