public class RmiProxyFactoryBean extends RmiClientInterceptor implements FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>, BeanClassLoaderAware
FactoryBeanfor RMI proxies, supporting both conventional RMI services and RMI invokers. Exposes the proxied service for use as a bean reference, using the specified service interface. Proxies will throw Spring's unchecked RemoteAccessException on remote invocation failure instead of RMI's RemoteException.
The service URL must be a valid RMI URL like "rmi://localhost:1099/myservice".
RMI invokers work at the RmiInvocationHandler level, using the same invoker stub
for any service. Service interfaces do not have to extend
java.rmi.RemoteException. Of course, in and out parameters
have to be serializable.
With conventional RMI services, this proxy factory is typically used with the RMI service interface. Alternatively, this factory can also proxy a remote RMI service with a matching non-RMI business interface, i.e. an interface that mirrors the RMI service methods but does not declare RemoteExceptions. In the latter case, RemoteExceptions thrown by the RMI stub will automatically get converted to Spring's unchecked RemoteAccessException.
The major advantage of RMI, compared to Hessian and Burlap, is serialization. Effectively, any serializable Java object can be transported without hassle. Hessian and Burlap have their own (de-)serialization mechanisms, but are HTTP-based and thus much easier to setup than RMI. Alternatively, consider Spring's HTTP invoker to combine Java serialization with HTTP-based transport.

public void afterPropertiesSet()
This method allows the bean instance to perform initialization only possible when all bean properties have been set and to throw an exception in the event of misconfiguration.
public java.lang.Object getObject()
As with a
BeanFactory, this allows support for both the
Singleton and Prototype design pattern.
If this FactoryBean is not fully initialized yet at the time of
the call (for example because it is involved in a circular reference),
throw a corresponding
As of Spring 2.0, FactoryBeans are allowed to return
objects. The factory will consider this as normal value to be used; it
will not throw a FactoryBeanNotInitializedException in this case anymore.
FactoryBean implementations are encouraged to throw
FactoryBeanNotInitializedException themselves now, as appropriate.
public java.lang.Class<?> getObjectType()
nullif not known in advance.
This allows one to check for specific types of beans without instantiating objects, for example on autowiring.
In the case of implementations that are creating a singleton object, this method should try to avoid singleton creation as far as possible; it should rather estimate the type in advance. For prototypes, returning a meaningful type here is advisable too.
This method can be called before this FactoryBean has been fully initialized. It must not rely on state created during initialization; of course, it can still use such state if available.
NOTE: Autowiring will simply ignore FactoryBeans that return
null here. Therefore it is highly recommended to implement
this method properly, using the current state of the FactoryBean.

public boolean isSingleton()
FactoryBean.getObject()always return the same object (a reference that can be cached)?
NOTE: If a FactoryBean indicates to hold a singleton object,
the object returned from
getObject() might get cached
by the owning BeanFactory. Hence, do not return
unless the FactoryBean always exposes the same reference.
The singleton status of the FactoryBean itself will generally be provided by the owning BeanFactory; usually, it has to be defined as singleton there.
NOTE: This method returning
false does not

SmartFactoryBean.isPrototype() method. Plain
implementations which do not implement this extended interface are
simply assumed to always return independent instances if the
