Subject Re: Testing EJB local interfaces
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2002 16:27:30 GMT
Can you create the test case to act like a remote test client, so that 
you can connect to a remote EJB server?

When you compile an EJB class in JBuilder, it generates Stub and 
Skeleton classes for you.  This is how the EJB Test Client connects to 
the server.  I think if you create an EJB Test Client through the wizard 
and follow the same set of code to write your test case, you should be 
able to connect to your EJB server through another VM.
