Hello there,

The following statement is causing me a ClassCastException I have never seen this kind of error before and don�t quite know how to fix it.

I�m trying to create a distributed java RMI program that is capable of keeping a reference to itself and other instances of itself. (I.e. this one file is ran multiple times with different arguments in the command line)

Any help on this error would be greatly appreciated guys.

I just relized that I need to use the interface to refernce the RMI register instead, however I need to store a object of its own class in a list and I dont see how storing a list of the interfaces can help, is there a way that you can pull the "atucal" class from the register class?

Given code doesnot seems to be enough to comment on, atleast provide stacktrace

I have narrowed down the problem to what I think is me trying to get a refernce of an object from itself that implements interface through the interface object that is regiesterd in RMI, however when I attempt to do this I receive the ClassCastException error.

(I apologize for the large block of code but wanted to make it clear as possible)
