Comparing JAX-RPC with Other Distributed Technologies

This section points out the difference between JAX-RPC and other technologies for distributed computing, more specifically RMI, CORBA, and DCOM. It also discusses when to use JAX-RPC as opposed to JAXM.

Differences between JAX-RPC, RMI, DCOM, and CORBA.

RMI stands for Remote Method Invocation. RMI is a Java-specific technology for RPCs. RMI's strongest point is that it is a Java-only technology, meaning it is very well integrated into the Java language and platform.

This is also its greatest constraint because it means that RMI does not work with applications written in other programming languages such as C++. If you're in a Java shop, RMI is a good solution; otherwise it is simply not usable. ...
