public interface RMIServerSocketFactoryAn
RMIServerSocketFactoryinstance is used by the RMI runtime in order to obtain server sockets for RMI calls. A remote object can be associated with an
RMIServerSocketFactorywhen it is created/exported via the constructors or
RMIServerSocketFactoryinstance associated with a remote object is used to obtain the
ServerSocketused to accept incoming calls from clients.
RMIServerSocketFactoryinstance can also be associated with a remote object registry so that clients can use custom socket communication with a remote object registry.
An implementation of this interface should implement
truewhen passed an instance that represents the same (functionally equivalent) server socket factory, and
falseotherwise (and it should also implement
