Does anyone know of any pros/cons to starting the RMI registry from within my application as opposed to externally via the rmiregistry exectutable?

Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Try these two steps putting in any class main method

Here's another way:
Registry registry = LocateRegistry.createRegistry(); // default port
I use the below method to try and start rmid but to no success.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
