Dear Geeks,
I have a scenario where in I need to start the rmi registry and then stop it from my application.I use LocateRegistry to create the registry and then I want to destroy it somehow. At present even after the application has died rmi registry continues to listen on port.How do release this resource.
Thanks in Advance

It's not an object, per se. It's a separate process running on your system. You need to tell your system to kill it. Use the Runtime object and invoke whatever command terminates it.
