Howto connect to EJB from applet


Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Howto connect to EJB from applet

  1. Howto connect to EJB from applet (3 messages)

    Hi guys...

    I need to connect to a session bean from a client applet.

    I already have the bean deployed on jboss 3.2.3 and it seems to work nicely. I can access it from a jsp page on the jboss server.

    So the core of my question is: How does my applet find the ejb, since the code is evaluated on the client machine there must be something like a file or so that i have to supply with the appletclass so it find the initialcontext correctly...

    Any pointers to a good tutorial would be sufficient, cause i couldnt find any....

    Thx alot


    P.S.: I know i know.... some of you will start with "Use WebServices" or something like that,... but at the moment i need it to work NOW... in the next project ill consider other solutions...

    In the client code, assuming you use Jboss server:


    Properties jndiProps = new Properties() ;
             String myServer = this.getCodeBase().getHost ();
             jndiProps.setProperty("java.naming.factory.initial", "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory" ) ;
             jndiProps.setProperty("java.naming.provider.url", myServer ) ;
             jndiProps.setProperty("java.naming.factory.url.pkgs", "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces" ) ;
             TestAppletHome home = (TestAppletHome)PortableRemoteObject.narrow( new InitialContext(jndiProps).lookup( "TestAppletBean" ),
                                                                                TestAppletHome.class) ;
             TestApplet remote = home.create() ;
             ejbMessageLabel.setText( remote.getMessage());


    I have deployed an applet accessing a stateless ejb but I het a socket write exception... if you have got a good tutorial please write me:
