I am very new to JBoss. Can anyone tell me if a rmid is started by jboss and can jboss start a rmid?
JBossRemoting starts a rmi regsitry if using the RMI transport. However, since that is probably not what you are looking for, you can explicitly execute rmid within your own code that runs as a service. See http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r3/html/ch2.chapter.html#ch2.mbeanservice.sect for more info on how to write your own service class.
