How to write unit testcase for distributed app like RMI

I've read some short JUnit tutorials and write some test cases myself. But most tutorial teach me on doing testing against standalone app.
So my questions come. How to do unit testing against distributed application like RMI? Do I need to learn Mock Object?
Thanks.

If you want to use JUnit, then yes mock objects help. The trick from a testing standpoint I find is that you want to simulate not just correct behaviour, but what the behaviour is when you encounter problems (e.g. simulated network partitions).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
