Looks like perhaps the CLASSPATHs are different from the one on your command line vs the one through the GUI. You could try an "echo $CLASSPATH>/tmp/myfile.txt" just before you execute the "java RMIServerImpl" command (both command line and GUI) and then compare.

RMI has special needs. One of them is that the RMI Registry needs to have the application linkage classes within its classpath. That is because the registry is simply an app that listens on a port, receives client requests, and returns the requested linkage to the client. For more details, check in out RMI forum where the experts hang out.

IDEs tend to have sloppy classpaths, since both the development and debug environments exist and overlap, as do multiple applications that might be running at the same time. So the fact that something runs in an IDE doesn't guarantee it will run in the Real World.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
