My problem is, when i try to access my EntityBean thru WebClient (Servlet), i get "javax.naming ...... SectionBean not bound".
I had carefully double check that my bean is bound with the same name (SectionBean), in my deployment descriptor, <ejb-name>SectionBean</ejb-name>, as in the lookup() method.
I`ve been hunting for the solution for 2 days now. Plz can anyone help me out here.
I am using JBoss-Final-3.0.0 with Tomcat-Final-4.0.0. Tomcat is running on 8085 and JBoss on default port.
Relatively new to EJB ...
<ejb-name> tag does not define the JNDI name of your bean. It is just a logical name given to your EJB.
Assuming in your file ejb-jar.xml you have defined your bean with the logical name called SectionBean (using the tag <ejb-name>SectionBean</ejb-name>) , you need to provide other information in another file called jboss.xml (the file name and contents is EJB container specific. With JBoss , it is jboss.xml . With Weblogic , it is weblogic-ejb-jar.xml)
In your jboss.xml is the place where you give the JNDI name for your bean. Look at the example below. That is roughly what you should have defined in jboss.xml
Note that you should provide the EJB's logical name here as well (within the tag <ejb-name>). The logical name should map to what you have defined in ejb-jar.xml . The JNDI name is given within the <jndi-name> tag. You can change it to ,let's say <jndi-name>FooBean</jndi-name>. If you do that , you can look up the bean using the JNDI name "FooBean"
Hope the above helps.
