public interface RMIServer extends Remote
RMI object used to establish connections to an RMI connector. There is one Remote object implementing this interface for each RMI connector.
User code does not usually refer to this interface. It is specified as part of the public API so that different implementations of that API will interoperate.
String getVersion() throws RemoteException
The version of the RMI Connector Protocol understood by this connector server. This is a string with the following format:
protocol-version is a series of
two or more non-negative integers separated by periods
.). An implementation of the version described
by this documentation must use the string
After the protocol version there must be a space, followed by the implementation name. The format of the implementation name is unspecified. It is recommended that it include an implementation version number. An implementation can use an empty string as its implementation name, for example for security reasons.
RemoteException- if there is a communication exception during the remote method call.
RMIConnection newClient(Object credentials) throws IOException
Makes a new connection through this RMI connector. Each remote client calls this method to obtain a new RMI object representing its connection.
credentials- this object specifies the user-defined credentials to be passed in to the server in order to authenticate the user before creating the
RMIConnection. Can be null.
IOException- if the new client object cannot be created or exported, or if there is a communication exception during the remote method call.
SecurityException- if the given credentials do not allow the server to authenticate the caller successfully.
