I am currently doing the RMI on-line tutorial at http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/rmi/, but I would really like a good book on RMI.
What's the best book for learning RMI?

Hi Gregory,
Sun's tutorial is one of the best around.
But you can also try "Java Remote Method Invocation" by
Troy Brian Downing.I found it very good!!
Hope this helps,

Thanks. Unfortunately Troy Brian Downing's book is out of print. I ordered "Java.RMI" by Esmond Pitt, et al. instead. It seemed to have pretty good ratings on Amazon.
I read somewhere that another RMI book was due out at the end of October, but I didn't want to wait that long.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
