The following code is considered to be incorrect:

Context initCtx = new InitialContext();
TaxHome taxHome = (TaxHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/tax"), TaxHome.class);
Tax tax = (Tax) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(taxHome.create(), Tax.class);


The explanation: "Casting using PortableRemoteObject is not done for remote interfaces returned by bean methods".

I agree the component interface doesn't need to be narrowed, nor even casting is required. But I think the code is correct and runs without any problems.

Well the way I understand it the question says "The following code is considered to be incorrect" and not that "The following code is incorrect". Although this code will work but its not correct because there is no need to narrow component interface .


Hope this helps.
