        Description

        In JDK 18, attempting to run rmiregistry results in the following:

        $ rmiregistry
        java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: The Security Manager is deprecated and will be removed in a future release
        at java.base/java.lang.System.setSecurityManager(System.java:416)
        at java.rmi/sun.rmi.registry.RegistryImpl.createRegistry(RegistryImpl.java:499)
        at java.rmi/sun.rmi.registry.RegistryImpl.main(RegistryImpl.java:556)

        The workaround is to allow set the security manager property on the command line to allow programmatic setting of the security manager:

        $ rmiregistry -J-Djava.security.manager=allow

        Alternatively, the security manager could be enabled directly on the command line:

        $ rmiregistry -J-Djava.security.manager

        Either works, though they give different warning messages.

        The property should be set by the rmiregistry launcher instead of requiring the user to provide it.
