About the Author

William Grosso is a well-known speaker, Java SIG chair, and software architect currently residing in the San Francisco Bay area. He's been working with distributed systems since 1995, lectures for the University of California Berkeley Extension on Enterprise APIs, and is the principal engineer at Hipbone Inc. A former mathematician, he got into programming because it seemed like easy money. He got into distributed computing because he noticed that client-server gurus got the big bucks. And then he started programming in Java because he figured that's where the REAL money was. Having learned the error of his ways, he decided to write a book instead. When not programming or writing, he spends most of his time hiking, drumming, and trying to remember that it was he was about to say.

Some aspects he focus heavily on but some aspects he doesnt. I had to buy several other books to try to understand what he was talking about. If you want to do RMI, you might as well go read the RMi specification, much easier that way. For beginners, you should really get Java Network Programming by Rusty Harold to get some understanding on network programming, since RMI is built on top of this.
