Just wondering as regards the RMI part of the assignment, Is it possible in RMI to have multiple objects all in the same registry but all on different ports? I think this is the way servers work in the real world. My problem would be though, how would one, after starting the server and registering an object on a port, test if passed another object whether the server has previously existed or not? Maybe my understanding is wrong here, but is there a difference between a registry object and a server or is 1 object allocated to 1 registry at a time?
