JAVA RPC (Remote Procedure Call)

  1. The calling stub is suspended when parameters are transferred across the network to the stub where the procedure is to execute. The call is a local procedure call with parameters pushed onto the stack in the normal way.
  2. The client stub packs the procedure parameters into a message and makes a system call to send the message. The packing of the procedure parameters is called marshalling.
  3. The client’s local OS sends the message from the client machine to the remote server machine.
  4. The server OS passes the incoming packets to the server stub.
  5. The server stub unpacks the parameters called unmarshalling
  6. When the server procedure is finished, it returns to the server stub, which marshals the return values into a message. The server stub then hands the message to the transport layer.
  7. The transport layer sends the resulting message back to the client transport layer, which hands the message back to the client stub.
  8. The client stub unmarshalls the return parameters, and execution returns to the caller.
