  57 A remote object registry is a bootstrap naming service that\[aq]s used
  58 by RMI servers on the same host to bind remote objects to names.
  59 Clients on local and remote hosts can then look up remote objects and
  60 make remote method invocations.












  61 .PP
  62 The registry is typically used to locate the first remote object on
  63 which an application needs to call methods.
  64 That object then provides application\-specific support for finding
  65 other objects.
  66 .PP
  67 The methods of the \f[CB]java.rmi.registry.LocateRegistry\f[R] class are
  68 used to get a registry operating on the local host or local host and
  69 port.
  70 .PP
  71 The URL\-based methods of the \f[CB]java.rmi.Naming\f[R] class operate on
  72 a registry and can be used to:
  73 .IP \[bu] 2
  74 Bind the specified name to a remote object
  75 .IP \[bu] 2
  76 Return an array of the names bound in the registry
  77 .IP \[bu] 2
  78 Return a reference, a stub, for the remote object associated with the
  79 specified name
  80 .IP \[bu] 2
  81 Rebind the specified name to a new remote object
  82 .IP \[bu] 2
  83 Destroy the binding for the specified name that\[aq]s associated with a
  84 remote object

  79 The URL-based methods of the \f3java\&.rmi\&.Naming\fR class operate on a registry and can be used to look up a remote object on any host and on the local host\&. Bind a simple name (string) to a remote object, rebind a new name to a remote object (overriding the old binding), unbind a remote object, and list the URL bound in the registry\&.
