Thanks again for the quick response and it is very helpful!   Hope I can get it working
any day soon!:-)

So I decided to redesign my test scenario based on your recommendations:
1) Find a J2EE client and EJB sample that would work in geronimo environment.   Luckily,
I was able to get the MagicGball ear file deployed and the MagicGball-client running in
the J2EE client container.   I'd like to use this sample and modify it so that the J2EE
client can communicate to EJBs via IIOP.
2) Customize the EJBs and make them available through Corba
3) Customize the client so that it can use the EJB through Corba

I followed your guildance below on No. 2 and No. 3 but I could not get much further.  
Could you please help?

I created the openejb-jar.xml file myself, since MagicGball didn't have one.   
I could not find much example on <tss-link> I assume I can put a tss bean name
"SSLClientCert" that is specified in the j2ee-server-corba-plan.xml.   Not sure if this
is correct, all I know is that the deployer didn't complain:-) 
I put the <include>..</include> before the <enterprise-beans> but when I
tried to deploy
the ear file, the deployer complained that it expected a <enterprise-beans> tag instead.

      Can I just set the parentID to "org/apache/geronimo/ServerCORBA" to reach the same
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <openejb-jar xmlns=""

I read Aaron's book on J2EE client application, and I didn't see anywhere mentions
openejb-jar.xml, so I assume you mean geronimo-client.xml here?

>                  <ns-corbaloc>corbaloc::<target name service host>:<name

> service port>/NameService</ns-corbaloc>
>                  <name>targetEjbName</name>
>                  <css-link>SSLClientCert</css-link>
>              </ejb-ref>
> (fill in the correct values for the host and port)

I tried to modify the geronimo application client xml file provided by MagicGball as
follows, but the deployer complained the ns-corbaloc, name, css-link elements were not
allowed when I deployed the ear file.
<application-client xmlns=""

    <display-name>Magic G Ball</display-name>

Deployer error:

I think I need to change the ask(String question) method in use
Corba.   I am a bit lost here on what parm would ic.lookup() take?   Since I could have
define them via the ns-corbaloc tag.

        //linsun: look up MagicGBallHome in the naming context
        InitialContext ic = new InitialContext();
        Object mgbObj = ic.lookup("corbaname::localhost:1050/NameService");   

        //linsun: perform a safe downcast
        MagicGBallHome home =

        //from the original sample
        MagicGBall mGball = home.create();
        String answer = mGball.ask(question);

Gave up this approach--don't want to run into too much surprises!:-)
