I am using a singleton (service locator).I am using an hashmap as static class variable to cache all remote/local objects.
In clustered environment I will end up having one service locator per JVM. Even the static hashmap which hold references will be one per JVM.
My concern is even though a reference may be available in one JVM cache,because of clustering the request may go to other JVM and create a new reference in cache in that JVM.
Is there any impact of caching remote/local references in this way wrt to clustered environment

As long as you are caching EJBLocalHome / RemoteHome reference you should be fine. Actual implementation of Home interface is implemented as single ton by most of the app servers. Each JVM will maintain reference to EJB<Local/Remote>Home Ojbect available on that box. Clustering should not matter.
I hope you are trying to store reference to EJBLocalObject / EJBObject. Won't make sense to do so.
