I have an EJB deployed on JBoss 3.07 server which I need to access from a servlet running on a Tomcat engine on another machine. But when i try to do it, I get a lookup failure on the jndi name. I have set the InitialContext as it should be. Any idea what it could be due to. Is there any other setting required in tomcat to access EJBs.

(The same EJB when accessed from the embedded servlet engine in JBoss works fine)

The Tomcat in JBoss is running in the same JVM as the EJB container. For remote access, you need to pass the environmental entries into the constructor of InitialContext. You will need something like this.

Hi there, thanks for the post. Actually i did it the same way but its not working. I get the following exception.

- Failed to connect to localhost:1099
javax.naming.CommunicationException: Failed to retrieve stub from server localhost:1099 [Root exception is java.io.EOFException]

I am able to access the same EJB successfully from the Tomcat instance thats running within JBOss. Its only for external clients that its failing
