There is not a built-in way to do this. I recommend creating a registry
object -- similar to ExtensionRegistry -- in which you can register all the
types you need to handle. Then you can register the types in high-level
code and pass that down to the RPC system, which itself then won't need to
know what types it is handling.
Note that every message type has a "default instance" which can also serve
as a factory for the type. So basically, your registry will just be a
Map<String, Message>, where the messages are the default instances that you
get from calling MessageType.getDefaultInstance(). You can call
defaultInstance.newBuilderForType() to create a new builder.
