Since EJB can not access system resouces like file directly. i.e. File myFile = new File(); is not allowed by EJB spec. How would you use EJB to process interface (inbound & external) data from flat ascii files. (By the way I am open to don't use EJB's as an answer, however the alternative and why is what I would need so I can investigate and prototype the options). Thanks in advance, Andrew

One way is to use RMI objects that are registered with JNDI. This way they can be accessed remotely in the same way EJBs are by doing a JNDI lookup.
