Comments about oreilly Java RMI:

I have done my advanced network programmation exam with this book, it requires a strong knowledge of java before you study it. It's great, I reccomend it. If you don't know Java I suggest you to read "Java programmation guide, Cohoon-Davidson, McGraw-Hill".

the other reviewers missed something

Comments about oreilly Java RMI:

A lot of people bag on this book and that is unfortunate.

This book is not a reference. The pitt book is a reference.

This book is an introduction to distributed computing with RMI as the vehicle. This book has helped many people like myself who were simply not ready for distributed computing when they read it. The coverage of IO and threads is necessary.

I can honestly say that after reading this book, I was both prepared for distributed computing and proficient as an RMI developer. But, this is not a commercial for me. This is a positive review for a very good (and unfairly maligned) book

The book explains concepts well and has good information. But definitely not a ultimate guide to RMI.
