One of my instructions say:
"You must use RMI over JRMP (do not use IIOP)"
Is JRMP the default for RMI? Is there anything special I have to do or check?
Thanx.
Jacques

They do this just to confuse you. JRMP, or Java Remote Method Protocol, is the default protocol created by SUN for RMI. In fact you will not even hear SUN refer to JRMP as JRMP. Instead they say the "RMI transport protocol". So basically you do not have to do anything!!!
Use RMI and it will default to JRMP. It is a low level, wire level actually, protocol. By the way there is a JRMP API (net.jini.jrmp).

Bill, thank you for clearing things up for me. I suspected it was something like that.

So what is IIOP? Or let me rephrase the question just to be ultra clear, if I just stick to the RMI as specified in the j2se docs on suns website I wont accidentally use IIOP will I?

Nope. Just ignore that it was ever mentioned and you'll be OK.

Hi Morgan,
IMO, it is just to tell the candidates not to overkill by implementing an ORB and then connect using IIOP. So you stick to UnicastRemoteObject and it will be fine.
Best Regards
