Deploying an RMI application!

Hi All,

I've developed a simple RMI application, but have yet to deploy it onto an application server. In other words, I have it running on my localhost, using rmiregistry in my command prompt. However, I was wanting a good tutorial explaining how to deploy a rmi app on a server, such as weblogic, websphere etc. Therefore, I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction in obtaining a comphrehensive guide. I must point out I have very little experience in using app servers, so I am looking for a thorough walk through. Thanks in advance.

One option could be use Servlet ( which auto-loads as container starts ), and start registry from init method of it and register your service there!

You'd need to search the documentation for the specific application server - here's the documentation for using RMI in Weblogic 8.1...
