I've heard about the Java RMI that will be used to communicate between objects in distributed systems.

We have implemented a java program run as a scheduler on the client server.
One of our major client want the scheduler run on the UNIX server.
The problem is all the Oracle report and form are stored on the client server. Let's say if the scheduler is installed on the UNIX Server and up and running, the BIG question is:

1. How can the scheduler run the report on UNIX but the report executable module is stored in the Client server. Can Java RMI resolve this problem? If yes, what I need to know, or which web sites i can get more information about Java RMI, I get some info from java.sun.com but i found difficult to understand.

Please advise and give me some ideas.

Many thanks in advance

 first of all, i assumed that Client Server means the client.

 1) You can use Java RMI to resolve this problem.
    Put the Schedular function in the Server. you can call this function from the client, as if it is in the same system. In the client, there will be only interface containing that function definition.
    http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/rmi/RMI.html [ just try the example given in that page and ask if you get any doubts in that].

Hope this helps
