How dynamic do we need to be?

I'm a little confused. The instructions specify
the use of sockets or RMI, but they don't say
anything about making RMI use Dynamic Class Loading or Remotely Activatable Objects. They do, however, mention that you can specify values for codebase and security policy files in your command line args.
Is this something they're looking for, or is it just for those who are a little more ambitious?
Thanks, Doug

Just for the more ambitious. Myself and several other SCJDs on the forum highly recommend you put all the classes you'll need into your client side jar file, and have no codebase/security policy stuff whatsoever. Keep it simple.
I agree. Here's the link:
