14  * An <code>RMIServerSocketFactory</code> instance is used by the RMI runtime
15  * in order to obtain server sockets for RMI calls. A remote object can be
16  * associated with an <code>RMIServerSocketFactory</code> when it is
17  * created/exported via the constructors or <code>exportObject</code> methods
18  * of <code>java.rmi.server.UnicastRemoteObject</code> and
19  * <code>java.rmi.activation.Activatable</code> .
20  *
21  * <p>An <code>RMIServerSocketFactory</code> instance associated with a remote
22  * object is used to obtain the <code>ServerSocket</code> used to accept
23  * incoming calls from clients.
24  *
25  * <p>An <code>RMIServerSocketFactory</code> instance can also be associated
26  * with a remote object registry so that clients can use custom socket
27  * communication with a remote object registry.
28  *
29  * <p>An implementation of this interface
30  * should implement {@link Object#equals} to return <code>true</code> when
31  * passed an instance that represents the same (functionally equivalent)
32  * server socket factory, and <code>false</code> otherwise (and it should also
33  * implement {@link Object#hashCode} consistently with its
34  * <code>Object.equals</code> implementation).
