  | 1. The payload uses byte[1024] empty array always. and the object is never serialized.
  | 2. why byte[] as theres not thing there to serialize in it
  | 3. Even on using byte[1024] to be sent across using jboss and java rmi we see java rmi is superior on our machines.
  | If this is the case then how ar the graphs generated? Or am i missing something very important. Please help.

Actually, the byte array gets wrapped in some Remoting objects, which do indeed get serialized.

By "Java RMI with Java serialization" I assume you mean the  "raw_socket" results, or maybe the "raw_rmi" results, and by "Jboss RMI + socket + Jboss serialization" I assume you mean "socket transport with jboss serialization".  Is that right?  If so, then I can't explain why you're seeing results different than ours.  Who knows?  Different machines, different jdk's, etc.

By the way, before I released version 2.4.0.GA, I did a lot of testing and tuning, and, in the end, the performance of 2.4.0.GA and whatever the latest 2.2.x release was at the time were very close, within a few percentage points.
