Hello everyone.
Yesterday I finished my final Java project where I had to build GUI client-server app.After successfully compiling this,I came to an idea to try and transpose this to RMI,thus,I have only worked with some basic RMI examples.
In my code,I have one thread for a client,one for a server,let me give you a snippet,so you can visualize it.



And here is the snippet of a server code..

Basicallz what I think that I need to do,is to implement interfaces both for server and client,but as I have two threads,I dont really understand how to do it,I read something about callbacks and threadsafe threads,but could not figure it out myself.

RMI is sort of obsolete. I wouldn't spend time learning it unless you knew for sure that you'd need it.

An architecture that might teach you more immediately useful technologies might involve a server running in a servlet container that is accessible via a REST API (implemented using the Java JAX-RS API). That would also take care of the server-side thread issues.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
