Name

rmiregistry: The Java RMI Object Registry — JDK 1.1 and later

Synopsis

    rmiregistry [ port ]

Description

The rmiregistry command starts a remote object naming registry on the current host. The RMI registry binds remote objects to names, so that remote clients can request object references by name. It uses the object references to invoke methods.

Internally, the rmiregistry command uses the java.rmi.registry.LocateRegistry class to instantiate a registry object. If no port is provided, the default port for the registry is 1099. Typically, the registry is run in the background on a server and remains running for the lifetime of the objects it contains. If the registry crashes and the registry is running in a separate Java VM from the actual remote objects, the remote objects are still available over RMI, and any remote references to these objects that existed before the crash are still valid. However, all the name bindings the objects had in the registry are lost and need to be re-created after a new registry is started.
