public interface RMIClientSocketFactory
RMIClientSocketFactory instance is used by the RMI runtime in order to obtain client sockets for RMI calls. A remote object can be associated with an
RMIClientSocketFactory when it is created/exported via the constructors or
exportObject methods of
RMIClientSocketFactory instance associated with a remote object will be downloaded to clients when the remote object's reference is transmitted in an RMI call. This
RMIClientSocketFactory will be used to create connections to the remote object for remote method calls.
RMIClientSocketFactory instance 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 be serializable and should implement
Object.equals(java.lang.Object) to return
true when passed an instance that represents the same (functionally equivalent) client socket factory, and
false otherwise (and it should also implement
Object.hashCode() consistently with its
Socket createSocket(String host, int port) throws IOException
Create a client socket connected to the specified host and port.
host- the host name
port- the port number
IOException- if an I/O error occurs during socket creation
