A typical problem when running and building java RMI Applications is the following Exception:
Registering server with rmiregistry Error happened: RemoteException occurred in server thread; nested exception is: java.rmi.UnmarshalException: error unmarshalling arguments; nested exception is: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.ibm.pbo.rmi.HelloInterface
To handle that problem, you have to set the following JVM Argument when running the ServerApplication:
When using Eclipse, you can set this Argument in the Run Configuration:
Right Click on the ServerApplication java file -> Run As -> Run Configuration
Go to the Arguments Tab and insert the codebase argument in the VM Arguments Section:
Be careful with the trailing slash at the end. This slash is NECESSARY.
When I tried to point to the src directory of my Project it did not work, but if it points to the bin directory it worked fine.
Have fun with Java RMI 🙂
