The message Whenever a client invokes a method that accepts parameters on a remote object, the parameters are bundled into a message before being sent over the network. These parameters may be of primitive type or objects. In case of primitive type, the parameters are put together and a header is attached to it. I In case the parameters are objects, then they are serialized. This process is known as marshalling . At the server side, the packed parameters are unbundled and then the required method is invoked. This process is known as unmarshalling .

More on stub & skeleton A remote object is an object whose method can be invoked from another JVM. The stub is an object, acts as a gateway for the client side. All the outgoing requests are routed through it. It resides at the client side and represents the remote object. When the caller invokes method on the stub object, it does the following tasks: It initiates a connection with remote Virtual Machine (JVM), It writes and transmits (marshals) the parameters to the remote Virtual Machine (JVM), It waits for the result It reads (unmarshals) the return value or exception, and It finally, returns the value to the caller.

When the skeleton receives the incoming request, it does the following tasks: It reads the parameter for the remote method It invokes the method on the actual remote object, and It writes and transmits (marshals) the result to the caller.

RMI Registry RMI registry is a namespace on which all server objects are placed. Each time the server creates an object, it registers this object with the RMIregistry (using bind() or reBind() methods). These are registered using a unique name known as bind name .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
