The RMI server calls the method on the RMI implementation object, and the result is sent back across the network to the RMI client.

The RMI advantage is that the Java programmer does not have to write code to package the method call, send it across the network, and receive the response. The RMI programmer provides only an implementation object and the remote interfaces. WebLogic Server's RMI implementation handles transporting the method call from the client ...
