I am beginner to RMI, Why we need to place stub files generated after executing, rmic -v1.2 BookServerSide BookServerSide_stub.class to both client & server side ? As i know, stub file is a representation of server side object over the client side, to which client pass the request. If i dont put the stub file over the server i get an exception java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: BookServerSide_Stub even though i agree to a point, how server will come to know client ? Why we dont generate skeleton file as in jdk1.1 ? from , vikram.

Vikram, Please read the JavaRanch policy on user names at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp, and register a user identity with a complete first and last name. I'm working on an answer to your questions about stubs on the server and how unmarshaling works without a skeleton; now that I'm at that point in my Developer project I feel like I ought to know too. In the meantime, any RMI internals expert please feel free to help us out here! Jerry
