I doubt it. The instructions are explicit in that you have two choices of network transport: RMI or serialized objects over sockets. I would presume that RMI means Sun's implemtation only. Michael Morris

Perhaps I should clarify - TRMI is not a different implementation of standard RMI, but an extension to it i.e. extra code that uses the standard implementation RMI. To quote from the SourceForge project home page - "Transparent RMI is an extension to Java's RMI mechanism that greatly simplifies the creation of distributed applications. It allows any interface to be used remotely, and provides centrelized recovery from RemoteExceptions." This sounds like it could be useful to me, but is it allowable? Thanks, James.
I think you are you are thinking in the real world, which is really a good thing . But for this project, just keep it basic. We use open source projects a lot where I work, and we have more than 100,000 users for some of our apps, so I dont want you to stop thinking about these kinds of solutions, but like I said, for this assignment, just keep it simple... I learned a lot just using RMI and now that I am working with EJBs, I understand them a lot more because they are based on RMI. I hope this is the kind of answer that you were looking to find... Best,
