Remoteinterface serves to identify interfaces whose methods may be invoked from a non-local virtual machine. Any object that is a remote object must directly or indirectly implement this interface. Only those methods specified in a "remote interface", an interface that extends
java.rmi.Remoteare available remotely.
Implementation classes can implement any number of remote interfaces and
can extend other remote implementation classes. RMI provides some
convenience classes that remote object implementations can extend which
facilitate remote object creation. These classes are
