I'm running on a SINGLE pc (lets call it pc A) a simple Hello World test using RMI. It works fine. The problem is when i try to start the client from ANOTHER pc (pc B).
I am doing the following...
Steps on pc A (server): ----------------------- I compile the server object, client object and interface. I create the stub file using >rmic ServerImpl I start the registry with >start rmiregistry. I start the server.
note: in the client object i have the following:
HelloInterface server = (HelloInterface)Naming.lookup("rmi://192.168.0.3:1099/Server");
the ip address is the LAN ip of the server.
Steps on pc B (client): ----------------------- Copy the generated client.class file from the server to the client (pc B). I run the client and it says it cannot find HelloInterface (which is on the server (pc A).
note: the server is run with JRE 1.4 and the client runs with JRE 1.5, but even when i tried it on two JRE 1.4, i get the same problem.
The actual message i get on the client is a NoClassDefFoundError: interfavceName;
It's like it can't find the interface or stub file. Where am i going wrong?
Hi, You require intterface to be present on both the side (client, server), so check that you have that remote interface available on the client, plus the stub of the server (o/p from rmic)... Actually this is not required in new JDK (Java SE 5.0)....
Hope this will help.
