My PLAIN RMI Stubs are going to reside in an iPlanet J2EE App Server and my RMI Objects are going to reside in a phsically separate Oracle App Server. Now my question is, is it possible to use Plain RMI for that purpose or does it have to be IIOP. I'm trying to avoid the overhead associated with IIOP.

I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Tee Zee

RMI can be used to communicate between Java client and server, ir-respective of operating system. As it supports different OSit might ok with App server also I hope. IIOP will be in upper hand on distributed environment like client is non-java and server uses Java.

Thanks Shankar for your reply. Please note that my PLAIN JRMP RMI client and server are going to be purge Java, and they are going to reside on two different boxes. The client will reside in the Web container of my iPlanet App. Server (thru JSPs, Servlets) and my plain (JRMP, not IIOP) RMI server objects will reside in another Oracle App. Server JVM in a different box. So my question is, is that possible? I would be HUGLEY surprised to know that this is not possible, because Plain RMI (JRMP) is the foundation of EJB. My knowledge is that of course this is possible, but what made me post this question is that one of my colleagues said no it's not possible which I'm pretty confident not true, so I just want to confirm that. I'd really appreciate a direct answer.

Thanks a lot,
