Subject RE: Tomcat and Sun's Application server
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2006 16:59:31 GMT
What I am trying to do is access an EJB from a Tomcat servlet which is
what EJB's are designed for.

For example, lets say I have an EJB that excepts a two Strings.  One is
the username and the other is the Password.  The EJB then verifies the
username/password with the datasource and sends a success or failure
back to the EJB client.  This way you only have to set up the logic once
(in an EJB) and then any application (servlet, swing, jsp....) should be
able to access it.  
That is the theory anyway, but it does not seem to be working with
tomcat because I can access the EJB through console, swing, and most web
based apps except for the ones on my Tomcat cluster :O(.

Forgive my ignorance (I don't have much experience with EJBs), but it
sounds like you are trying to use EJBs outside of an EJB container,
which doesn't make a lot of sense.

Just because you can pull an EJB out of JNDI doesn't mean that you can
do anything with it. If you want to work with EJBs, you're going to need
an EJB container, so Tomcat won't meet your needs.

Am I wrong?
