If the ejb1 uses ejb2, then ejb1 has to have an entry(ejb-ref for remote access to ejb2, ejb-local-ref for local access) in the dd that will refer to the ejb2.

the bean provider will start it by putting the ejb-ref/ejb-local-ref dd blocks, and some info that he knows, like <home>, <local-home>.

the application assembler, will make sure these ejb-ref/ejb-local-ref will be 'pointing' to ejb2, by using jndi-name(when ejb2 can be outside the ejb1's ear) or ejb-link(ejb2 is in same jar or ear as ejb1).

Curious, the index (and table of contents) seems to have skipped that one...
You probably flew just right by it - Chapter 2 page 41-43 "EJB References"
