Just wanted someone to confirm my understanding of RMI concerning the need for webservers.
Basically, I don't want to use them. So in order for this to happen, all I need to do is make sure that both server and client have all the necessary .class files they will ever need. In effect, I could just duplicate the application on both the client and server to make sure they are a copy of each other (including all the *_Stub.classes).
Then it's only the necessary network communication over port 1099 for the rmiregistry calls.
