Hi Sanjay,

IIUC you are trying to get to the ejb from a javaee app that is not part of the app containing the ejb?

(if they are part of the same app your can use an ejb-link IIRC)

I think you can either include a properties object in new InitialContext(properties) with the openejb jndi properties to use openejb jndi directly or include an ejb-ref or @EJB and use some configuration in the geronimo plan to refer to the ejb in the other app.

hope this helps... it is not a complete answer but might point you in a useful direction.

Hi all,
   I am trying to call an EJB from a client that is itself deployed in same server i.e Geronimo 2.2. But I am getting Exception.
The code to call EJB is:
try {
            Context icontext=new InitialContext();
             obj = icontext.lookup("ejbName");

And I am getting exception as:

javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: ejbName

I have @Local and @Remote annotations in the EJB. And it works properly when called from external client. I have tried iContext.lookup("ejb/beanrefname")
as well as all these:

Can anyone give me any idea how to accomplish this.?
How to lookup an EJB from client code that resides in same server.?
and all that...
