Unreferenced interface—Building the server—Foundation classes—Serialization—Alternative server classes—Exercises
The simplest form of RMI server is the “unicast” server. This chapter describes how to write and build such servers. Along the way, it provides general information about implementing remote interfaces, sharing sockets and ports, and using the
Unreferenced interface. Finally, we discuss the classes
