Throws:
RemoteException - if failed to export object
Since:
JDK1.1

UnicastRemoteObject

protected UnicastRemoteObject(int port)
                       throws RemoteException
Creates and exports a new UnicastRemoteObject object using the particular supplied port.

Parameters:

                       throws RemoteException
Creates and exports a new UnicastRemoteObject object using the particular supplied port and socket factories.

Parameters:
port - the port number on which the remote object receives calls (if port is zero, an anonymous port is chosen)
csf - the client-side socket factory for making calls to the remote object
ssf - the server-side socket factory for receiving remote calls
Throws:

Method Detail

clone

public Object clone()
             throws CloneNotSupportedException
Returns a clone of the remote object that is distinct from the original.

Overrides:
clone in class Object
Returns:
the new remote object
Throws:
CloneNotSupportedException - if clone failed due to a RemoteException.
Since:

exportObject

public static RemoteStub exportObject(Remote obj)
                               throws RemoteException
Exports the remote object to make it available to receive incoming calls using an anonymous port.

Parameters:
obj - the remote object to be exported
Returns:
remote object stub
Throws:
RemoteException - if export fails
Since:
JDK1.1

exportObject

public static Remote exportObject(Remote obj,
                                  int port)
                           throws RemoteException
Exports the remote object to make it available to receive incoming calls, using the particular supplied port.

Parameters:
obj - the remote object to be exported
port - the port to export the object on
Returns:
remote object stub
Throws:
RemoteException - if export fails
Since:
1.2

exportObject

public static Remote exportObject(Remote obj,
                                  int port,
                                  RMIClientSocketFactory csf,
                                  RMIServerSocketFactory ssf)
                           throws RemoteException
Exports the remote object to make it available to receive incoming calls, using a transport specified by the given socket factory.

Parameters:
obj - the remote object to be exported
port - the port to export the object on
csf - the client-side socket factory for making calls to the remote object
ssf - the server-side socket factory for receiving remote calls
Returns:
remote object stub
Throws:
RemoteException - if export fails
Since:
1.2

unexportObject

public static boolean unexportObject(Remote obj,
                                     boolean force)
                              throws NoSuchObjectException
Removes the remote object, obj, from the RMI runtime. If successful, the object can no longer accept incoming RMI calls. If the force parameter is true, the object is forcibly unexported even if there are pending calls to the remote object or the remote object still has calls in progress. If the force parameter is false, the object is only unexported if there are no pending or in progress calls to the object.

Parameters:
obj - the remote object to be unexported
force - if true, unexports the object even if there are pending or in-progress calls; if false, only unexports the object if there are no pending or in-progress calls
Returns:
true if operation is successful, false otherwise
Throws:
NoSuchObjectException - if the remote object is not currently exported
Since:
