Do you know if there is a way to stop the RMI service on the server side programatically?
I started RMI by creating a Registry with LocateRegistry.createRegistry(). I traced the program with jconsole. It seems like whatever I do (unbinding the service, unexporting the exported service object, even unexporting the registry itself), the RMI Accept-<port> thread(s) don't stop. Do I have to exit the application to stop the RMI threads, or have I just missed something?
Edward Harned: thanks for the answer. Too bad; I think this is a serious feature hole in RMI, then.
Mr. C Lamont Gilbert: As I said in the topic starter, I unexported both. And I think nothing is listening, just the "RMI Accept-Xxxx" threads are running (and who knows what other resources RMI needs). Unfortunately it seems that there is no way to write a flexible RMI server (with reconfigurable ports). Or, rather, not this way.
For reference, here is the code. Never mind the method indices, I had some others as well to test it

Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
