Hi Friends

I tried several options to run my client Program but failed.
I have deployed my addressbook.ear in to Orion Server.
below is the Deployment Descriptor ejb-jar.xml configured with ejbname, Home ,Remote and Ejb Bean


and the application-client.xml is configured as


and in my client program i am trying to get the HomeRefence as

Context initial = getInitialContext();
Object homeref = initial.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/AddressEntry");
AddressBook home = (AddressBook)PortableRemoteObject.narrow(homeref,AddressBook.class);


and getInitialContext() is set as

ctx = new InitialContext(ht);
return ctx;

Each time i am getting the same message by running my Client as:

MESSAGE:java:comp/env/ejb/AddressEntry not found in <global>
at com.evermind.server.rmi.RMIContext.lookup(.:121)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(
at addressbook.ejb.SessionClient.main(Unknown Source)

can any body give a lead to find where i am going wrong

With every appserver I have worked with there has to be a vendor-specific descriptor accompanying the ejb-jar.xml. In JBoss this file is jboss.xml, and I guess that there must be one for Orion too.
In this file you have to map the ejb names to the JNDI names. Here is an example from jboss.xml.

The thing to remember here is that the ejb-name tag in ejb-jar.xml is NOT the JNDI name. Maybe this is the solution to your problem.
