I want to use RMI as distributed application accross n/w, i.e. no one is server, no one is client, any can connect to any and can access object.
if not in RMI then tell me how in CORBA.
It's Urgent.

I suggest you take a look at recent books and articles on peer-to-peer technologies. This problem has been solved in many ways.

I can think of two options.


1) when a client is alive, it broadcasts its existence to a multicast address (not a "pure" RMI implementation) and every client maintains a list of near-by clients' addresses.


2) there is some global server, which maintains a list of clients online, and every client registers itself to that server (doesn't meet the "no server" requirement).


I'm not too familiar with Java networking technologies, especially not with ad-hoc systems, so please, don't take my word as the sole truth...
