Hi !!
Stubs and skeletons contain the method signatures of the remote objects.
Anyone would like to comment ?

Hi all,
Stub objects are surrogates that support exactly the same set of remote interfaces defined by the actual implementation of a remote object.
A skeleton is a server-side entity that dispatches calls to the actual remote object implementation. The dispatch logic is to unmarshals any arguments from the input stream obtained from the call object, invokes the method (indicated by the operation number opnum) on the actual remote object implementation obj, and marshals the return value or throws an exception if one occurs during the invocation.
Correct me if i m wrong and any add-on information will be appreciated.
Cheers.

Stubs and Skeleton were introduced with the RMI to remove the Remote Invocation Logic that were earlier made by RPC etc. It actually encapsulates the Serialization and Deserialization Logic between the client and Server talks.
It provides location transparency to remote object invocation, and other network specific issues like marshalling and demarshalling of objects is done in a simpler way of serialization and deserialization of java objects and transferring the objects from one JVM to the other remote JVM.
Hope it helps ............

Hi All,
This does'nt contain Method Signatures. IT contain logic about packaging the arguments list , depackaging , location transparency,Marshalling ....
bye

Here is an example of a stub:
import java.rmi.server.*;
import java.lang.reflect.Method;
import java.rmi.RemoteException;
import java.rmi.UnexpectedException;
public final synchronized class CallbackApplet_Stub
extends RemoteStub implements ClientInterface {
private static final long serialVersionUID = 2;
private static Method $method_popup_0;
static Class class$ClientInterface;
static Class class$java$lang$String;
static {
try {
$method_popup_0 = ((class$ClientInterface != null) ?
class$ClientInterface :
(class$ClientInterface = class$("ClientInterface"))).getMethod("popup", { (class$java$lang$String != null) ? class$java$lang$String : (class$java$lang$String = class$("java.lang.String")) });
} catch (NoSuchMethodException e) {
throw new NoSuchMethodError("stub class initialization failed");
}
}
public CallbackApplet_Stub(RemoteRef remoteRef) {
super(remoteRef);
}
static Class class$(String string) {
try {
return Class.forName(string);
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
throw new NoClassDefFoundError(e.getMessage());
}
}
public void popup(String string)
throws RemoteException {
try {
Object object;
ref.invoke(this, $method_popup_0, { string }, -6724103847495166028);
} catch () {
throw object;
} catch () {
throw object;
} catch () {
throw new UnexpectedException("undeclared checked exception", object);
}
}
}

Manas , you will get more idea about the STUB & SKELETON in rmi / corba forum.
Briefly , you can say that it is java extention of RPC ( Remote Procedure Call ) . Offcourse for distributed systems.

They are plain java files. Just open them and see what they do
