RMI Release Notes

JDK 1.2 Contents 
Remote Method Invocation (RMI) has several new enhancements. Remote Object Activation introduces support for persistent references to remote objects and automatic object activation via these references. Custom RMI client and server socket factories allow a remote object to specify the custom socket type that RMI will use for remote calls to that object. RMI over a secure transport (such as SSL) can be supported using custom socket factories. Minor API Enhancements allow the following: unexporting a remote object, obtaining the stub for an object implementation, obtaining a local object implementation from a stub, and exporting an object on a specific port.
