This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
"In the RMI (Remote Method Invocations) protocol, numbers are always sent in big-endian byte ordering, and objects are encoded with the serialization mechanism"
Sourced from Core Java Vol. 2 (7th Edition), Chapter 5.
Does big-endian byte ordering cause issues when communicating with particular server architectures?
Conversely does CORBA architecture ensure that processors storing bytes in big-endian (first byte carrying most significant bit), and, processors storing bytes in small endian (first byte carrying least significant bit) can communicate?
Do you have examples?
