Uses of Package

Packages that use java.rmi.activation
java.rmi.activation Provides support for RMI Object Activation. 

Classes in java.rmi.activation used by java.rmi.activation
          An activation descriptor contains the information necessary to activate an object: the object's group identifier, the object's fully-qualified class name, the object's code location (the location of the class), a codebase URL path, the object's restart "mode", and, a "marshalled" object that can contain object specific initialization data.
          General exception used by the activation interfaces.
          An ActivationGroup is responsible for creating new instances of "activatable" objects in its group, informing its ActivationMonitor when either: its object's become active or inactive, or the group as a whole becomes inactive.
          An activation group descriptor contains the information necessary to create/recreate an activation group in which to activate objects.
          Startup options for ActivationGroup implementations.
          The identifier for a registered activation group serves several purposes: identifies the group uniquely within the activation system, and contains a reference to the group's activation system so that the group can contact its activation system when necessary.
          Activation makes use of special identifiers to denote remote objects that can be activated over time.
          An ActivationInstantiator is responsible for creating instances of "activatable" objects.
          An ActivationMonitor is specific to an ActivationGroup and is obtained when a group is reported active via a call to ActivationSystem.activeGroup (this is done internally).
          The ActivationSystem provides a means for registering groups and "activatable" objects to be activated within those groups.
          The Activator facilitates remote object activation.
          An UnknownGroupException is thrown by methods of classes and interfaces in the java.rmi.activation package when the ActivationGroupID parameter to the method is determined to be invalid, i.e., not known by the ActivationSystem.
          An UnknownObjectException is thrown by methods of classes and interfaces in the java.rmi.activation package when the ActivationID parameter to the method is determined to be invalid.
