    Perhaps you should narrow the looked-up object to an interface extending EJBHome:

    MyHome myHome = <lookup from JNDI>
    myHome = (MyHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(myHome, MyHome.class);

    It would actually help if you give details of the exception or error you are receiving rather than just pasting in your code fragment !!!

    Some things to try, :-

    1. Since you are using a Properties class for the arg to InitialContext, supply the SECURITY_PROVIDER and SECURITY_CREDENTIALS fields just in case you haven't got integrated logins to your weblogic server (i.e connections as guest)

    2.Do you actually have a JNDI context setup as :-


    or is this a package / class combinations ?

    The name you put in here is the name you have defined in your ejb-jar.xml file which maps to you weblogic-ejb-jar.xml file. There should be a <jndi-name> in that file. Put that name in there. Also, if you are using 'ejb/BeanName' syntax you may want to quote as :-


    again, it depends on how you have constructed your xml files !!!!

    If its a JSP calling an EJB, I'm assuming you have setup the proper <ejb-ref> definition in your web.xml file ?

    Your "Context.PROVIDER_URL" should have a value of t3://localhost:7001 instead of http://localhost:7001
    Similarly you use "t3" in weblogic to lookup any JNDI Resources.

    h.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "t3://localhost:7001");
