    Yes. Most Bukkit plugins reference the keyword 'this' when registering listeners, etc. This is essentially referencing the running instance of the org.Bukkit class. Is it possible to make org.Bukkit serializable?

    I suggest you go back to learning Java, that is not what 'this' means at all.

    Reference 'this' instance right?

    Ok, so I may have learned java/programming from reading random forums posts and getting my hands dirty, so to speak, and I may have misunderstood quite a few things. But... I always thought that in a situation like this one:

    Code:
    private Plugin plugin;
     
    public Plugin getPlugin() {
        plugin = this;
        return plugin;
    }
    'this' would refer to the Bukkit instance. I was lead to believe this because I had to use similar code to pass the main Bukkit instance to different classes to use the getConfig() method. I most likely misunderstood why I needed to use the keyword because just by reading my own code snippet, I realize now that it would be passing 'this' instance of my plugin, right?

    So in a similar situation where I want to reference the same instance of a process from a seperate JVM (hence the serialization, using outputstreams), what exactly do I need to pass, and how would I serialize it?
