and the class:

public class RMIFactoryServerImpl extends UnicastRemoteObject implements RMIFactoryServer  {

    private static final long serialVersionUID = 2364209308189771862L;

    private static Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(“ServerMain”);

public RMIFactoryServerImpl() throws NumberFormatException, RemoteException, FileNotFoundException, IOException{

//TODO implement GUI for the initial parameters

//TODO, is the bellow assumption right?

//The server will run with the default parameters  

//This starts up the registry at port 1099 on the local machine.

        java.rmi.registry.LocateRegistry.createRegistry(Integer.parseInt( Utils.readPropertiesFile(“serverPort”)));

        logger.fine(“RMI registry created on port :” + Utils.readPropertiesFile(“serverPort”));

        String name = “rmi://” + Utils.readPropertiesFile(“serverAdress”).trim() + “:” + Utils.readPropertiesFile(“serverPort”).trim() + “/URLyBirdRMIServer”;

        logger.info(name);

Naming.rebind (name, new RMIFactoryServerImpl());

Solution:

While trying to implement the Factory design pattern  for RMI the following line is generating the problem:

             Naming.rebind (name, new RMIFactoryServerImpl());

The error was caused by trying to rebind with a new instance of the class were it was running. It was solved by passing the class itself rather than a new instance:

       Naming.rebind (name, this);
