1.7.4 RFI

Remote Function Invocation (RFI) is a means of sending and receiving serialized Java objects between a client JVM and the remote JSM server.

The RFI Example Viewer is a simple GUI application that illustrates how to use the RFIService client class and the JSM service RFIDataSourceService. The Java programmer modifies the RFIExample source code and compiles and runs the RFI Example Viewer application to execute the RFIExample class to perform a Remote Function Innovation (RFI) to the remote JSM server.

RFI requires a Java SDK (Software Developer Kit), which includes the JRE, installed on the PC.

RFI may be installed on the developer's PC.

Note: This software can be installed with Integrator or it can be installed separately. Refer to Task: Install Other Features.
