Is Java RMI supported on Azure Web apps?

One of the Java application targeted for migration to Azure Web app uses RMI , is it supported on Azure Web apps?
Azure web apps uses port 80 and 443, whereas port used for RMI would be different.

@navpat-0927 Thank you for your interest in using RMI on Azure Web Apps.

You are able to do RMI over HTTP as it's a built-in functionality. Please see here for more details on that.

If you are required to use ports rather than HTTP, you can look into using an Azure Web App Container, which still only uses 80 and 443 but you can open the necessary RMI ports on the container and then map those ports to 80 and 443.

Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns regarding this setup. If not, we would appreciate it if you could mark this reply as a verified answer.

I Is it necessary to use custom socket factory to use SSL encryption to secure RMI call?

Scenario we are looking at is Client from on-Prem environment will make RMI call to Azure VM over the internet.
