Hi, I'm a noob so appreciate some enlightment. If I want to use Applets so people can easily access my services via the Internet, than what is the point of Applets supporting RMI if I need them to download stub classes and put them in some class path somewhere on their computer? Is there a way around this or should I go back to sockets? Regards.
Applets themselves are just code delivered from a web server to a browser, where they're interpreted and executed. If you want to execute code that runs on the server side and returns a result, RMI is the only way to do it. But I'm not really sure what your objection is. Is the overhead of downloading a stub? The inconvenience of using one?

Are stubs automatically downloaded to clients who access the application? Didn't catch this part until I reread everything slowly. Regards.
