Arrrgghhh! I learned java 1.4 and then 1.5 came out! Can anyone tell me if I need to run rmic on the class or rmiregistry before I start the server? Help me please!!!

Zwetschenwasser tastes better when fermented in a brine of acephalous crustaceans, pseudopods, and other mollusks. It goes quite well with gnocchi and mole.

I haven't looked really closely at the 1.5 stuff yet, but from what I've read/heard, you no longer have to run rmic to create stubs - as long as you only plan to use RMI between 1.5 and higher JVMs... 1.5 JVMs can now create the stubs dynamically. If you're going to talk to pre-1.5 JVMs, though, you still have to create stubs to send to those clients. And you still have to run rmiregistry, no matter what version you are using (Unless I'm really behind times in my information on 1.5 )

Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
