Class java.rmi.server.RemoteServer

Direct Known Subclasses:
Activatable, UnicastRemoteObject

public abstract class RemoteServer
extends RemoteObject
The RemoteServer class is the common superclass to all server implementations and provides the framework to support a wide range of remote reference semantics. Specifically, the functions needed to create and export remote objects (i.e. to make them remotely available) are provided abstractly by RemoteServer and concretely by its subclass(es).

The subclass selected identifies the semantics of the remote reference, for example whether the server is a single object or is a replicated object requiring communications with multiple locations. At present only UnicastRemoteObject is supported.
