What is NexusRMI?
NexusRMI is a Remote Method Invocation framework implementing broadly the same functionality

framework. We implemented most of the functionality, but some things are yet unsupported.
NexusRMI is built on top of NexusJava which

had to be made to NexusJava in order to work for NexusRMI, we include the NexusJava package in this
This distribution includes a complete RMI runtime system, together with two supporting compilers: the
first compiler supports object serialization, which is used to pass non-remote objects by value, the
second compiler generates the necessary stub and skeleton pairs.

The NexusRMI object serialization framework is described here.
NexusRMI is ongoing work. Currently unsupport features and suggestions for future work are described
