RMI Http Servlet is a Java technology that allows to
deploy Client-Server Applications based on RMI (Remote Method
Invocation) on a light server as TomCat.
Design and realize Client-Server Applications with RMI
is very efficent and easy, but often it requires heavy resources
server-side and causes difficulties during the deployment phase. On
the other hand, Servlets are easy to deploy and can be hosted for
FREE by many Cloud providers. Servlet technology, however, does not
provide a powerfull and easy way for realize the Client-Server
comunication as RMI does.
The purpose of RMI Http Servlet is to overcome this
gap combining RMI and Servlets Java Technology.
