We are trying to access the service of a c++ server running on a diff host from an EJB deployed on the Sun RI(J2EE SDK) over CORBA. The EJB loads the object which really hosts this logic from a JAR .

That means the EJB and the object acts as a client to the C++ server. We have tried the same from a simple servlet also.

When we write a simple Java client to access the services of the server through CORBA , it works fine.
But, when we put the same code in the bean or servlet and deploy from the App Serv (J2EE SDK), where the following call (_non_existent) fails and generates an exception.

// Resolve the Root Naming Context
org.omg.CORBA.Object root_nam_obj = orb.string_to_object(ior);
NamingContext rootContext = NamingContextHelper.narrow(root_nam_obj);

try {
if (rootContext._non_existent() )
catch (Exception e) { return " _non_existent failed for rootContext"; }
Prior to this line, we are initializing the ORB like the following where "" is the current host and 3700 is the port where orb-listener is running (taken from the file <install-dir>/domains/domain1/config/domain.xml

String [] args = { "" };
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitialPort", "3700");
props.put("org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitialHost", "");

org.omg.CORBA.ORB orb = org.omg.CORBA.ORB.init(args, props);
In domain.xml , there are 3 entries for iiop-listeners. Those were default and we didn't change them.

<iiop-service client-authentication-required="false">
<orb max-connections="1024" message-fragment-size="1024" use-thread-pool-ids="thread-pool-1"/>
<iiop-listener address="" enabled="true" id="orb-listener-1" port="3700" security-enabled="false"/>
<iiop-listener address="" enabled="true" id="SSL" port="3820" security-enabled="false">
<iiop-listener address="" enabled="true" id="SSL_MUTUALAUTH" port="3920" security-enabled="false">

What we have observed in the server.log is , when the client is run , it is trying to create an IIOP listener again and fails.

I think, we are doing something wrong with configurations. Can you please help.

I have finally found the solution. The solution was to get hold of the ORB of the app server. Hence the following 2 lines did the trick.

org.omg.CORBA.ORB orb = null;
try {

javax.naming.Context jndiRootCtx = new InitialContext();
orb = (ORB)jndiRootCtx.lookup("java:comp/ORB");
