Java RMI contains a wealth of experience in designing and implementing Java’s Remote Method Invocation. If you’re a novice reader, you will quickly be brought up to speed on why RMI is such a powerful yet easy to use tool for distributed programming, while experts can gain valuable experience for constructing their own enterprise and distributed systems.
With Java RMI, you’ll learn tips and tricks for making your RMI code excel. The book also provides strategies for working with serialization, threading, the RMI registry, sockets and socket factories, activation, dynamic class downloading, HTTP tunneling, distributed garbage collection, JNDI, and CORBA. In short, a treasure trove of valuable RMI knowledge packed into one book.
About the Author
William Grosso is the former Chief Architect / Director of Quality Assurance and current Vice President of Technical Services for Hipbone Incorporated. He is the author of Java RMI (available from O’Reilly and Associates) and a co-author of Java Enterprise Best Practices (also available from O’Reilly and Associates). He is one of the founders of Seruku, is on the program committee of the International Semantic Web Conference, and frequently volunteers at SDForum (where he serves on the Board of Directors and helps to run the Emerging Technology SIG). A former mathematician, he got into programming because it seemed like easy money. He got into distributed computing because he noticed that client-server gurus got the big bucks. And then he started programming in Java because he figured that’s where the REAL money was. Having learned the error of his ways, he decided to become management and write books instead. When not working, programming, or writing, he spends most of his time hiking and going to the theatre. You can find out more about him at wgrosso.com.
