I have been doing RMI programs using notepad.
They work fine but I am wondering how you can do them thru an IDE like eclipse.
Their is no RMI project to select when selecting a new project type?
The only thing I can think of is using some type of ant script or external process to automate running the rmic complier after compiling the classes and executing the rmiregistry command from the IDE.
But I am interested if their is another way I am not aware of thru eclipse. Perhaps some type of installable plugin for rmi projects or something I am not aware of.
In java we have Corba , RMI , EJB , JMS (really just EJB but message beans) , ...
Corba I would only use over RMI if their was different languages other then java involved. (but if their is another reason I am missing please let me know)
Rmi or EJB don't really know why one or the other I favor RMI just because it usually is the easiest to implement in most cases. (Curious though why one or the other)
using any of these distributive computing interfaces
Is their away to encrypt or at least have some security when sending a remote method (using sometype of SSLsocket instead of plaintext ) since I would think somebody looking with wireshark and nmap would beable to spoof or call a remote method if crafted the correct packet ....
How do you make it so corba , rmi , ejb , jms ,... etc use encrypted packets thru the network instead of plaintext ones , basically how do you implement/code for question 3 in your rmi , corba ,..etc applications.
