A "registry" exists on every node that allows RMI connections to
servers on that node. The registry on a particular node contains a
transient database that maps names to remote objects. When the
node boots, the registry database is empty. The names stored in the
registry are pure and are not parsed. A service storing itself in
the registry may want to prefix its name of the service by a package
name (although not required), to reduce name collisions in the
The LocateRegistry class is used to obtain the registry for different hosts.
