I wanted to post this under an alias, because I am embarrassed to admit that I have no idea what RMI stands for, and it is a pending leg of the Cattle Drive, and being a moderator for the Cattle Drive, I feel like I should at least know what RMI is!!!

Hi Carol,

Basically, RMI is a distribution mechanism which allows two Java programs running on separate Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to talk to each other. For example, program A (client) can invoke methods in program B (server) through RMI. You might want to read the Sun tutorial: RMI.

Moreover, with RMI you can distribute objects. Clients are allowed to use objects which lie at some remote server as if they existed locally.
