Hi,
        Yes you need not have any parameters when you are creating an InitalContext locally in the server.

Suppose you have a web app that refers an ejb
In the web.xml you should add an ejb-ref

      <ejb-ref>
         <ejb-ref-name>ejb/Trade</ejb-ref-name>
         <ejb-ref-type>Session</ejb-ref-type>
         <home>org.apache.geronimo.samples.daytrader.ejb.TradeHome</home>
         <remote>org.apache.geronimo.samples.daytrader.ejb.Trade</remote>
         <ejb-link>TradeEJB</ejb-link>
      </ejb-ref>

In your ejb-jar.xml you will define the ejb

 <enterprise-beans>
        <session>
            <description>Trade Session EJB manages all Trading services</description>
            <display-name>TradeEJB</display-name>
            <ejb-name>TradeEJB</ejb-name>
            <home>org.apache.geronimo.samples.daytrader.ejb.TradeHome</home>
            <remote>org.apache.geronimo.samples.daytrader.ejb.Trade</remote>
            <ejb-class>org.apache.geronimo.samples.daytrader.ejb.TradeBean</ejb-class>
            <session-type>Stateless</session-type>
            <transaction-type>Container</transaction-type>
       <session>
 </enterprise-beans>

And in your openejb-jar.xml the following

            <enterprise-beans>
                <session>
                    <ejb-name>TradeEJB</ejb-name>
                    <jndi-name>ejb/TradeEJB</jndi-name>
                </session>
            </enterprise-beans>

You can look up the daytrader application that is distributed with geronimo. I took the above example from that application.

You mean like this in the ejb-jar.xml ?

  <resource-ref>
    <ref-name>LookupName</ref-name>
    <resource-link>EntityBeanName</resource-link>
  </resource-ref>

but if I do it this way, how I create the context ?
Like this:

Context ctx = new InitialContext(); //without parameters ?

Hi Olivier,
               You need not pass any properties to the InitialContext for local lookups from other components running in the server. You only need to give an ejb-ref in the deployment descriptor. You can get more info on this from Aaron's book

http://www.chariotsolutions.com/geronimo/geronimo-html-one-page.html

There are also many examples in developerworks and confluence

To do the remote lookup for a bean I was setting my properties like this :

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
prop.put("java.naming.factory.initial","org.openejb.client.RemoteInitialContextFactory");
           
prop.put("java.naming.provider.url","localhost:4201");

prop.put("java.naming.security.principal","system");

prop.put("java.naming.security.credentials","manager");
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was researching and found that local calls should use:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
prop.put("java.naming.factory.initial","org.openejb.client.LocalInitialContextFactory");
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
but the question is (and I'm asking because I didn't had enough time to keep testing) do I need the other properties lines ? Think not because it is a internal container lookup but would like to be sure.
