Subject [rmi] spec issues (was Re: Contribution of RMI framework)
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2006 15:54:53 GMT
Hi Vasily, 

    There is one thing I would like to discuss with you and it is 
about the experience you had dealing with rmi's spec.
We found it -the spec- to be "very" vague and unclear; in many 
cases it seem to be written backwards (I mean they documented 
what the code does but do not follow a clear design criteria);
 there are some "expected" behaviors that cannot be accomplished
 with current spec, for example mixing RMI providers (having one 
provider on the client and another on the server) since JRMP 
protocol is not well defined and you cannot provide compatibility 
at this level just from the spec.
    We have taken note of the main issues we found 
(see http://www.itc.unc.edu.ar/javadev/rmi/specissues.html);
and I'm wondering if this is enough to go to JCP and made a JSR
for rmi to get a better revised design/spec...

    I'll wait for your comments.

Thanks, 

Daniel

Daniel,

Yeah, I'm also looking forward to a good discussion on that.
And I do believe we'd have a great Harmony RMI at the end.

Thanks to you also! :)

 Vasily

Vasily, 
        good to know that there is someone out there who has also 
been working on rmi; I believe we'll have a lot to share and discuss
 about it.   

Thanks, 

Daniel

Subject: Contribution of RMI framework


Hi, all,

I would like to announce the next code contribution to Harmony project
on
behalf of Intel corporation. This contribution contains the
implementation
of RMI framework.

The archive with this contribution can be found at:

http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-337

The Remote Method Invocation (RMI) framework enables an object in one
virtual machine to call methods of an object in another one, to create
applications distributed on various Java virtual machines on the same
or different hosts.

For more information please see the documentation contained in the
bundle.

The code is a result of efforts of Intel Middleware Product Division
team.
One should be able to run this code with a 1.4+ compatible JRE/VM (was
tested using commercial VMs). No classes require special support from
the VM.
All code is pure Java. The implementation is done according to Java 1.4
specification of RMI.

The archive contains the README file that explains the building and
running
process for this code. If any additional comments or clarifications are
needed, feel free to contact me. I will be happy to answer all questions
about this contribution and to participate in its further
development/maintenance and integration into Harmony.

Vasily Zakharov
Intel Middleware Product Division
