Hi,
I'm trying call a Session Bean from a JSP.
Every time I call it I get the following error:-
javax.naming.NamingException: Error instantiating web-app JNDI-context: No location specified and no suitable instance of the type 'mypackage.Travel' found for the ejb-ref Travel

I have checked all of the following files:-
ejb-jar.xml,
application-client.xml,
orion-application-client.xml,
orion-ejb-jar.xml,
orion-web.xml and web.xml
for any refrence to any of the following:-
<ejb-name>Travel</ejb-name>
<ejb-ref-name>Travel</ejb-ref-name>
<ejb-ref-mapping name="Travel" location="mypackage/TravelBean" />
<session-deployment name="Travel" location="mypackage/TravelBean" />
Within my JSP file I use:-
final String location = "java:comp/env/Travel";
Object boundObject = context.lookup(location);
Can anybody help?.

I am going to move this thread to the J2EE EJB forum. I think you might get some faster responses there.

I'm not familiar with Orion, but it looks like you're attempting to define the EJB as "Travel" to JNDI but when you lookup the EJB via JNDI, you're asking for "mypackage.Travel".
JNDI names are just dictionary ids, BTW. there's no particular need to qualify them unless it helps you keep track of where to look if you're managing a complex mix of packages.

I am not familiar with Orion, either. But my guess would be that maybe you need the ejb client-jar (containing Home and Remote interfaces) in the webapp's WEB-INF/lib?
