Class Loading Issues in Java™ RMI and Jini™ Network Technology

This really belongs in the details of the Jini documentation. I found it very helpful. Confused why this is a Sun *research* paper rather than just good exposition for understanding the mechanics (and touching on what should be in the "design rules") of Jini.

Class Loading Issues in Java™ RMI and Jini™ Network Technology

On the one hand it makes a dynamic language programmer suggest this is more evidence against compile-time type checking, and it makes a Smalltalk programmer suggest this is more evidence against not treating classes as truly first class objects, and it makes a Scheme programmer suggest this is more evidence against treating objects as anything more than closures...

On the other hand it does give one hope that Java can be used effectively in a distributed environment.
