Is there any property in rmi, so that the server time out is set to infinity? Also, is the remote object garbage collected after a time period? I dont want the remote object to be garbage collected.
My application, is a print server. I want the print server to be alive at all times.Irrespective of whether there are clients connected to it or not.

There have been may discussions on the Server exiting. Search through the forums.
It comes down to keeping a live reference to your impl class so it isn't garbage collected and keeping your main() that you used to start the server from exiting. (generally with a wait() forever)
