EJB design: ClassCastException

  1. ClassCastException (3 messages)

      I am having a grave problem when deploying beans. It gives ClassCastException. I am using weblogic server. The error occurs when I lookup the bean with the help of jndi.
    I am using a jsp as the client. Sometimes in the first attempt it works fine but the second time onwards it gives the error like
    ( java.lang.ClassCastException:xxxBeanHomeImpl_WLStub )

    Could any one tell me how to avoid this headache.

    thanx in anticipation

  2. ClassCastException[ Go to top ]

    In order to avoid ClassCastException,u try by doing
    like use PortableRemoteObject inorder to get an
    instance of home object


    <%@ page import="javax.naming.*" %>
    <%@ page import="javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject" %>

         DepositHome depositHome=null;
         Deposit deposit=null;

         WithdrawHome withdrawHome=null;
         Withdraw withdraw=null;
    try {

         Context ctx = new InitialContext();

         System.out.println("context found");

         java.lang.Object dref = ctx.lookup("transBeanDeposit");
         java.lang.Object wref =ctx.lookup("transBeanWithdraw");

         System.out.println("reference found");

         depositHome =(DepositHome)PortableRemoteObject.narrow(dref,DepositHome.class);
         withdrawHome =

  3. ClassCastException[ Go to top ]

    Thanks vinoth for the response,

             I tried it but its still giving the error.

    I have tried both the ways

       Object obj=ctx.lookup("transBeanDeposit");

       //this prints - Class DepositHomeImpl_WLStub

    DepositHome home=(DepositHome)obj;//This statement gives the error
       // The error is ClassCastException:DepositHomeImpl_WLStub

       Object obj=ctx.lookup("transBeanDeposit");

    DepositHome home1=(DepositHome)PortableRemoteObject.narrow (obj, DepositHome.class);//Again Error
    //at weblogic.iiop.PortableRemoteObjectDelegateImpl.narrow(
    // I think the error is at PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ojb,DepostiHome.class);

    I went through some documents at it said this error could also be due to the classloaders of the servers.
    so I am a bit confused.

    Thanks and expecting more suggestions

    I think ur using weblogic's PortableRemoteObject.Try
    using javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject.I assume ur using
    browser,u need to pack this package javax.rmi and send it back to client inorder to use it.
