You're asking in the wrong place. This is a user to user forum. Try the Java developers ... in your company.
However I have to state that, despite having written a book on it, I wouldn't use RMI at all for this. It's a convenience API, not a down-to-the-silicon performance ball-burner, and it inherits Serialization so you are two levels removed from the actual problem. RMI's conspicuous lack of an SPI, which was widely commented on last century (and ignored by Sun, hence the famous JSR 56/58 debacle), means there is nothing you can do about either.
You could try RMI/IIOP without too much disturbance of your codebase, but I'm pretty sure you really need a wire protocol of your own, implemented with nothing more complex than DataOutputStream and BufferedOutputStream.
The OTN forums for Berkeley DB, to which I contribute as a BDB developer, are not just user-to-user. The BDB developers monitor the forums and answer questions. Are you sure this forum is only user-to-user?
I am aware that the RMI developers work at Oracle. But I would prefer to ask a question about the RMI public API in a public forum so that non-Oracle users can benefit from the discussion. I often ask Oracle internal users of BDB to post to our forum, for the same reason.
You do get the odd Oracle developer around here, but on the whole if you want to attract their attention, this isn't a particularly good place to do that.
There's a site where you can go (bugs.sun.com) to report bugs and RFEs (of which your post is the latter). It's a bit rickety, but it seems to be up most of the time. Based on things which I've seen languishing without action for years there, I would guess that your suggestion isn't going to go anywhere there, either, but you never know.
Are you sure this forum is only user-to-user?Yes. The last time I saw an RMI developer here was about ten years ago. If you're asking questions like 'If there is a solution, or future plans for a solution, or even a statement that no solution is planned' you're definitely in the wrong place.
If you want to discuss RMI usage and ancient history on the other hand, I am here ;-)
