Question about RMI and which objects to tag with SerialID
posted 6 years ago
When I use RMI, are the only objects passed over the network ( and hence need to have a serialID specified ) the ones that you bind to your RMI registry, or are other classes - like exceptions throw in your binded objects also serialized and passed around?
so say I have a Car class, and I bind it to my registry so others can perform remote method invocation on it. My car class contains tires ( of class Tire ) and it also could possibly throw some custom exceptions ( like say, OutOfGasException ). Should Tire and OutOfGasException have a serialID? Are these objects serialized?
