Hi,
There are recently 2 RMI books being published.
Java RMI - by William Grosso
java.rmi: The Remote Method Invocation Guide - by Esmond Pitt, Kathleen McNiff, Kathy McNiff
It seem both are having good reviews.
Has anyone read both books?
Would apprecitate any recommendation on the books.
Thanks.

After reading java.rmi second, I prefer its presentation over that of the other book. Both are good for absolute beginner to programming distributed objects, however.

Hi,
Thanks for the advice.
In fact, I just bought the java.rmi book last Sat because the Java RMI book isn't available here.
So, it seems like a lucky, but good choice.
By the way, just for anyone who come across this post.
I'm trying to follow the Java Design Pattern : A Tutorial book.
Well, I must say it is not well written.
The idea it is trying to explain is confusing.
Design Pattern Explained is a much better book, but too bad it does not covers all the patter.
Cheers.
