    Logging in RMI server

      Hi All,

      I have requirement that I need to start an RMI Server before I connect and use the components registered in it. So I have used the ProcessBuilder to start the external process. The process seems to be starting fine but all the logging is not shown anywhere. I couldn;t see any logs of the RMI server which makes difficult to debug any issues. I have also set the "java.util.logging.config.file" while starting the process using "java -jar myrmiserver.jar" and the loggin config file is part of the myrmiserver.jar.

      I am starting this process in a tomcat environment and connecting it from tomcat. Please suggest me how can I enable all the logs to be shown either on my tomcat logs or the RMI server specific logs.

          Why start it in a separate process? Just export it from the Tomcat JVM. Then you get whatever logging configuration Tomcat is already using.

            We need to access some legacy code which is not thread safe in a in a multithreaded environment. To support this kind of functionality we exposed the legacy code as Remote interface and registering the implemented component to a RMI registry. so when ever multiple therads wanted to access this code it will create a RMI serever for that and access it remotely.

              But that doesn't solve the thread safety problem! RMI specifically makes no guarantees about that. See the RMI Specification. And neither does running it in a separate JVM!
