I'd start by asking yourself *why* you want to learn RMI. Although it has some advantages in specific areas, these are in my view outweighed by its disadvantages, especially given the ready availability of solid web services stacks these days. What kind of problem do you envision tackling with RMI that couldn't be handled at least as well using via web services?

As I said, these days you would use web services for what you might have used RMI for 10 years ago.

Hello,
As I said, these days you would use web services for what you might have used RMI for 10 years ago.

It is true RMI had a lot of problems..

is there another better option instead of RMI???

already suggested

or how we create a client server application by using core java???

Nowadays Web Services are used everywhere because web services is all about exposing and consuming XML..
web services are platform independent.. which means.. Google can make their app with which ever language they wish.. and you just have to know the URL:PORT:Service_Names to consume their services..

RMI is part of Java Networking programming( correct me if i am wrong) and hence many books are there such as:: Java RMI By William Grosso from O'reilly.

Goodluck,
Simple

Let's not forget RESTful services that are more likely to exchange JSON. SOAP is not the first choice for implementing web services any more.

Web Services are better in many cases, but if you have 100% control of your environment, and want a quick and easy solution, RMI is worth considering.

Have you gone through the RMI Trail in The Java Tutorials?

Here is a truely amazing example of dynamic class loading that may be useful. Just unzip, load up in Eclipse, and set it running. Truly amazing .
