Hi,

I would just like to know if it is possible to interupt an RMI method.

Suppose ane Application call it 'A' had to invoke an RMI method in an object hosted by another application say 'B' and the RMI method hosted by B had some code to the effect of "while(true)" or "for(;;;)".

Would it be possible for application A to interupt the RMI method or would the thread in A that invoked the method be blocked forever until application B terminated.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It depends on where it is running. If application A is runnign on the main thread then it will be block and you won't have any chance to interrupt it. If it is running from *another* thread then you could add your own code to handle such functionallity.

If A calles a method in B, then A shouldnt be able to continue until it has a satisfactory response from B (or at least, B returns). In the case where it is interrupted, that may not be the case and so your program could lose stability.

Does B return anything? Could it be run in a thread so that A simply calles the mehtod then continues with its own exectution?

In response to colr's comment:

I'm not in control of both sides of the interface, another company is coding Application B, the one whichs hosts the RMI method so i have no control over what that method does.

What i am trying to do is mitigate the risk that the RMI method never returns. I already invoke the method in B from a seperate thread in Application A so as to allow the rest of the application to continue however should the method in B never return i'm stuck with a thread i don't want.

So what i really want to be able to do is interupt an RMI call if it is taking too long.

You can make the thread exit or timeout after a specific amount of time, if method B never returns. Provide a method in your thread class that other objects can use it to ask it to stop running.
