I think that Equinox supports you to specify policies in its start 
configuration.

First of all I am a bit surprised to see that the RegistryImpl (jdk classes) 
is compiled with JDK1.1 styled _skel support and it being used.

The problem occurs on your server side, which I presume is running on OSGi. If 
not, then the problem is elsewhere.

You have not told us how you start the Registry.
What is important is that the rebind() method will serialize the Remote 
Reference to the RMI service, and send it to the RegistryImpl. Which in turn 
will hand it out to whomever is asking. The RegistryImpl is a nothing 
special, and just another RMI service with a known UnicastRef. Now, when the 
reference to your service is being serialized, it also transfers the codebase 
location used by the classes in the serialized stream, so the RegistyImpl 
knows where to get them.

So, if you don't specify reachable URLs (http://, ftp:// et al) in a 
URLClassLoader (not the case in OSGi, I think), then the system property 
java.rmi.server.codebase will be used as the reference to the classes. You 
are probably missing this, and it needs to point to the location of 
the "mobile code" (term used for RMI 2.0 n.k.a JERI).

Hope that helps.
