Thanks Ivan.  Your suggestion and Shawn's helped me to think about the problem.  As it turns out, this was a classpath issue.  In the classpath, I had the javaee-api ahead of the openejb-client.  When I got the classpath loading corrected, everything worked like I expected it to.  Once again, thanks.

I am wondering whether you have checked the classpath, which is suggested by David, as the exception looks like a low level error, 
e.g.  run classloader.getResource(" javax/ejb/EJBException.class") in your application to know the EJB API  jar location, and check whether the jar  file is corrupted. 

Hope it helps.

Ok.  This is good information for the when I actually package the EAR and deploy to the server.  However, right now, I am completely outside a Geronimo container.  How would I get this remote lookup to work?  Once again, the method that I am using now used to work with Geronimo 2.x

If you are doing the JNDI lookup from separate client EAR.  You'll have to provide a geornimo application deployment plan so that the client can get the ejb remote interface from the OSGi framework instead of from the remote interface packaged in the client ear.   That means,  you don't have to provide a remote interface class in your ejb client ear.  The remote interface will be provided by the copy that the EJB provider registered in OSGi framework after you add a "import" clause in the geronimo application deployment plan.


  <dep:environment xmlns:dep="http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/deployment-1.2">
    <dep:moduleId>
      <dep:groupId>default</dep:groupId>
      <dep:artifactId>your_seperate_EAR</dep:artifactId>
      <dep:version>1</dep:version>
      <dep:type>car</dep:type>
    </dep:moduleId>
    <dep:dependencies>
    </dep:dependencies>
    <dep:import-package>your.remote.ejb.interface.package</dep:import-package>
    <dep:hidden-classes/>
    <dep:non-overridable-classes/>
  </dep:environment> 

</application>

This is a limitation in Geronimo 3.0 after changing the OSGi framework.  Hope this helps.

First of all, thank you for your response.  The EAR has a structure of:

<ear-archive>
    -lib
        -<various assemblies
        - remote interface.jar
    - META-INF
        - application.xml
        - geronimo-application.xml
    - business-ejb.jar


Eventually, there will be two EAR archives in the Geronimo server.  Currently, there is only one that has been deployed to the Geronimo server.  I am testing the second EJB project using JUnit so currently it is acting as a stand alone client.  I am doing/will be doing the lookup using a separate EAR deployed to the Geronimo server.

The JNDI lookup is currently in a regular AppClient that is using JUnit to run tests.

The remote interface is included in the classpath of the AppClient.  Also, the following entry is included in the maven dependancy:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.openejb</groupId>
            <artifactId>openejb-client</artifactId>
            <version>4.0.0</version>
            <scope>provided</scope>
        </dependency>
       

Currently, I have an EAR archive that has been deployed to the server.

I'd like to know the structure of your EAR.  Are you doing the JNDI searching in the same EAR or in separate EAR ?  

What's module the JNDI lookup is in ?   WAR, or AppClient.     

I remember  for remote interface based JNDI EJB lookup in G3.  you'll have to import the remote interface in the client module to make sure the same interface  could be loaded  within OSGi framework in client side.

I am having problems looking up an ejb remotely.  In Geronimo 2.x, this worked perfectly.  Now I am having issues.  First, when I deploy the ear, this is the JNDI entries that are created.

I try to use this code to access the ejb's.

InitialContext context;
// Configure Initial context
        try {
            this.m_emailManager = (IEmailManagerRemote)context.lookup("EmailManagerRemote");
// Other statements

I get this error upon lookup:

please tell me what I am doing wrong because this technique worked in previous versions of Geronimo.
