"In the RMI (Remote Method Invocations) protocol, numbers are always sent in big-endian byte ordering, and objects are encoded with the serialization mechanism"
Sourced from Core Java Vol. 2 (7th Edition), Chapter 5.

Does big-endian byte ordering cause issues when communicating with particular server architectures?
Conversely does CORBA architecture ensure that processors storing bytes in big-endian (first byte carrying most significant bit), and, processors storing bytes in small endian (first byte carrying least significant bit) can communicate?
Do you have examples?

We use the Distributed Java forum for RMI questions, so I'll move this thread to it.
