Java RMI, passive object definition

0fb8b1e1-6f41-4e25-af65-62698838df86Apr 30 2015 — edited May 4 2015

From Java RMI Specification (Java Remote Method Invocation: 7 - Remote ObjectActivation): "A passive object is one that is not yet instantiated (or exported) in a JVM, but which can be brought into an active state. ". Question: an object exists only if it's instantiated (i.e. created as an instance of its class), so it's odd to talk about an object that has not been instantiated, probably I miss something. Can anybody clarify this?

Thx, Emil
