I'm a Windows .NET C# programmer, so I am struggling with Linux / Java / RMI.
Unfortunately the download (http://examples.oreilly.com/978059600...) fails.
Also, on page 641, the command at the center of the page "java -Djava..." does not work. Can someone explain what exactly "stubsdir" and "ServerMain" are?
I'm sorry to hear you had trouble downloading the sample code from our site. If you'll right-click on the file there and choose "Save Link As" (or whatever your particular browser calls it), that should download that .jar file. A jar file is really a zip file, but made for Java. To unzip the file, just change the .jar to .zip and unzip it. In the rmi folder there, you will see those files you are looking for.
On page 641, it says:
java -Djava.rmi.server.codebase=http://serverhost/stubsdir/ ServerMain
In this example, serverhost is the TCP/IP network name of the host where the RMI
server and registry are running, and stubsdir is some directory relative to the web server from which the stub files can be downloaded.
I hope that helps,
