A word on the Java RMI technology

RMI is a java framework of communication between two Java processes on a class/method invocation level. This allows to create more complex systems than one could create with plain sockets. RMI in Java is similar to Remoting in .NET. To learn more about Java RMI check the Java RMI Resources page.

Eclipse version support

RMI Plugin for Eclipse v2.0 requires Eclipse 3.1.2 and 3.2 and will work with products based on
these versions. RMI Plug-in for Eclipse v2.0 also supports RAD/RSA 6.0, but a number of small features are not available. Future releases of Eclipse based tools by IBM and other companies will be supported a short time after they are released. Previous versions of the RMI Plug-in provide support for some older versions of WSAD.

Java version supported: All recent Java versions are supported (from JDK 1.4.2 to Java 6.0 beta). Usually the RMI Plug-in will use the internal "rmic" interface, but sometimes it may have to revert to executing the command line version of "rmic". Previous Java versions (1.1, 1.2, 1.3) are not officially supported.

Previous versions

Previous versions of the RMI Plug-in for Eclipse are still available for customers that require compatibility with earlier Eclipse / RAD / RSA / WSAD releases:
