Please suggest a book on RMI I am a beginner but would like a book which explains RMI from the very basics upto advanced RMI Which has example coding and explanation of RMI, used in the real world Thank you
Anis, There is a dearth of good books specifically on RMI, I'm afraid. There are several books on general distributed computing in Java, each with a relatively small coverage of RMI. I do remember seeing one RMI-specific book, but I don't remember the name and it was JDK 1.1-only anyway. I've used these:
Java Distributed Computing, by Jim Farley, pub. O'Reilly, 1997. Very little RMI, JDK 1.1. Don't bother.
Distributed Programming with Java, by Qusay H. Mahmoud, pub. Manning Publications, 2000. 4 chapters on RMI, covers JDK 1.2. Pretty good book, it had everything I needed.
I've seen one more recent distributed computing book, but I didn't even check it out - it was too big to lift, and I distrust books that large on general principle. Anyway, Mahmoud's book covered all the ground pretty well. RMI just isn't very big or complicated. Hope this helps, jply
