Hi, I am new at EJB and i read Head First EJB.I use Windows XP,J2EE Reference Implementation and J2SDK 1.4.2.When i tried to run the first example and specifically the client (AdviceClient) the following message was displayed:
E:\source\projects\advice>java AdviceClient
Context Created!!!
javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environmen

at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(InitialContext.java:347)
at AdviceClient.go(AdviceClient.java:21)
at AdviceClient.main(AdviceClient.java:12)

---------------------------CODE---------------------------------------------
import javax.naming.*;

import javax.ejb.*;

public class AdviceClient
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
new AdviceClient().go();
}
public void go() {
try
{
Context ic = new InitialContext();
System.out.println("Context Created!!!");
Object o = ic.lookup("Advisor");
System.out.println("Lookup DONE!!!");
AdviceHome home = (AdviceHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(o, AdviceHome.class);
System.out.println("Narrowing DONE!!!");
Advice advisor = home.create();
System.out.println("Remote Object Created!!!");
System.out.println(advisor.getAdvice());
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
ex.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now from the message i think that somewhere i must specify the properties of InitialContext.Am i right and if i am where and how can i do this? Kathy,Bert HELP please!

I'm also having the same problem. Do we have to give any JNDI parameters? . Anyway I know it's something wrong with the client not EJB. Because it worked when i used a servlet
Can anyone help me?

Thanx in advance!
