I 've checked out XML-RPC but AltRMI I wasn't aware of. Looks 
very interresting and promising but I think AltRMI is currently 
not available for download, right? 

I will get me a note to check it out. Well most of the solutions have a
bunch of requirements like unable of method overloading or diffrences
between int and Integer mapping. There is another good looking
mechanism called dualserver which is a sourceforge project. But
the size is about 100kb or so. So it is not very handy for an applet.

What I am looking for is a replacement for this simple one (if one
exists). If there is a comparable solution I can may drop my affords
(not sure jet). But its so simple that I thought it can be provide use 
for everyone trying to connect two distributed bits both belonging to
the Java world.
