This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm new to java and I need to do a project for my class. I have to code a distributed deadlock detection algorithm and I have been told that Java RMI should help me create the different processes/threads that should show that they're running in a distributed system. The thing is, I don't know how to use rmi. Is it possible? If yes are there available tutorials that I could look at?
Once you are finished and have your grade, you might want to privately ask the class' instructor why they are still teaching RMI. Its rarely used these days. Its fallen out of widespread use, it was fairly popular 15+ years ago, but these days, there are better approaches.
