RMIServerSocketFactory instance is used by the RMI runtime
in order to obtain server sockets for RMI calls. A remote object can be
associated with an
RMIServerSocketFactory when it is
created/exported via the constructors or
RMIServerSocketFactory instance associated with a remote
object is used to obtain the
ServerSocket used to accept
incoming calls from clients.
RMIServerSocketFactory instance can also be associated
with a remote object registry so that clients can use custom socket
communication with a remote object registry.
