Interface RMIFailureHandler


public interface RMIFailureHandler

An RMIFailureHandler can be registered via the RMISocketFactory.setFailureHandler call. The failure method of the handler is invoked when the RMI runtime is unable to create a ServerSocket to listen for incoming calls. The failure method returns a boolean indicating whether the runtime should attempt to re-create the ServerSocket.

Since:
JDK1.1
