This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Martin, The only potential issue is one of portability. As I mentioned, Sun's rmiregistry does not allow your server to be on a different computer than the registry. However a registry provided by some other supplier may allow it. All of which is a bit academic though - nearly everyone doing this assignment starts the rmiregistry from within the server application itself, so therefore the server is guaranteed to be on the same computer as the registry.
