Hi,

I have a basic doubt.
To run RMI is it a pre-requisite that the Client and the Remote server be on the same versions of JVM.

Also can the to JVM be of different vendors say the Client is Sun and Remote Server is IBM.

Thanks in advance,

Honda

Hmmmmm . . .
RMI is used for easily passing Objects or remotely 'calling' these Objects.
My guess would be that as long as the Object can be understood by both JVMs, there should not be any problems.

Check out this site for RMI client/ server issues:

I'm not 100% sure that this is a prerequisite, but I think that is a good practice at least to have the same major version installed on the client and on the server.

With same major version I mean that both system have to run 1.3.x or 1.2.x...


Regards
