The naming conventions for ejbs must be followed or nothing else will  
work either:-)

I think you want the same patterns as ContainerIndex uses:

         <references name="EJBContainers">

You might be able to use *: or : but I wouldn't experiment too heavily  

Using openejb.server for the domain name would certainly prevent any  
ejb containers from being added to your collection :-)

This all depends on how many gbean classes you have, how many instances  
of each class will get deployed, and what kind of relationship between  
them might occur.

If there is exactly one of a gbean, and it's part of the system  
configuration, you can leave the type as "GBean" (the default) or make  
it something more informative such as "CORBAResource".  I don't recall  
any jsr-77 standard type for corba-related components, but this is  
similar to the mandated JTAResource I'm using for the transaction  

If there are potentially lots of instances of a gbean (like  
EJBContainers) you should the particular gbean its own type such as  
"CORBAWidgetRegistry" (you can tell how much I know about corba).

After you decide on type names, you should add it as a constant to  
NameFactory and use it when constructing GBeanInfo like this:

         GBeanInfoBuilder infoFactory = new  

Then, in the xml plan, you just say

<gbean namePart="defaultRegistry" class="...

and you get

As noted above, the domain name may be causing nothing to be found.

Hope this helps
