  • remoting using RMI and not always reachable server


    I've just started with spring yesterday, so please be patient

    I tried the RMI remoting example, and changed it a bit, and it works fine.

    However, I'm trying to use it in a scenario where the server won't always be up, so I'm not really sure how to configure the client. The problem is that if I use the normal config, the client won't even boot if the server is down (the client has several other features, so it should still boot, even without a server).

    So I was wondering what can I do about this, and after reading the spring reference, I'm thinking about having org.springframework.remoting.rmi.RmiProxyFactoryBe an configured as a prototype (non-singleton), so that it is only instantiated when my apps need actual remoting functionality.

    Is this the best way ? Any considerations ?

    I think in your config for RmiProxyFactoryBean, you want to set lookupStubOnStartup to false.
    You probably also want to set refreshStubOnConnectFailure to true.
