RMI Transport Reference

The RMI transport can be used to send and receive Mule events over http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JRMP[JRMP]. This transport has a dispatcher that invokes an RMI method and a polling receiver that repeatedly does the same.

You configure the RMI transport as follows:

The connector looks for the method and methodArgumentTypes. It uses the payload as the argument.

Note: In these code examples, spring-beans-current.xsd is a placeholder. To locate the correct version, see http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/[http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/].

JNP Connector

If you want to use the Java naming protocol to bind to remote objects, you can use the JNP connector instead simply by using the jnp namespace.
