This assures that all copies of clients and servers interact. an interface behave the same when The most significant effect an ACF has on your application code can be the addi tion of parameters to remote procedure calls not declared in the interface defini For example, the explicit_handle attribute adds a binding handle as the parameter to some or all procedures.
