Java Dynamic Management Kit 5.0 Tutorial

Multihome Interfaces

The multihome interfaces introduced in Java DMK 5.0 enable you to select the interfaces for the different network protocols used by connector clients.

An HTTP(S) client enables you to select a local interface to receive notifications from a server. This user-specific local interface address is sent to a server and is then used by that server to push notifications. The interface address can be specified as either an IPv4 or an IPv6 address, or as a host name.

An RMI connector client does not need to specify a local interface, except when a Java DMK 5.0 client needs to connect to a server from Java DMK 4.2.
