A remote object registry is a bootstrap naming service that is used by
RMI servers on the same host to bind remote objects to names. Clients
on local and remote hosts can then look up remote objects and make
remote method invocations.

The registry is typically used to locate the first remote object on
which an application needs to call methods. That object then provides
application-specific support for finding other objects.

The methods of the java.rmi.registry.LocateRegistry class are used to
get a registry operating on the local host or local host and port.

The URL-based methods of the java.rmi.Naming 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.
