I think I am confused with the way we access the EJB in various circumstances. The following is my understaning so far. Please validate my understanding and correct me if I am wrong.


1. Invoking an EJB located in a remote server from stand along Java client.

I cannot use @EJB annotation since there is no way for remote server's container
to inject dependency. So I need to use ACC to access an EJB located in a remote server.
I need to follow traditional JNDI look up to get a reference to the remote EJB.


2. Invoking an EJB located in a remote server from web application running on different server.

<same as above>

3. Invoking an EJB located in a remote server from a web application in a distrubuted environment.

In this case, since the environment is distrubuted, I can use DI (@EJB annotation) to
access EJB located in a remote server.


4. Invoking an EJB from any web application deployed in the same server and host.

I can use DI (@EJB) and it is straightforward approach.


am I correct?

I agree

What is the definition of 'distributed environment' (apart from 'remote server' ) ?
Injection can be done by hosting container only, not remote container.
@EJB is nothing but , a) Create InitialContext and then b) JNDI lookup . Unless the EJB is registered (like a resource) in JNDI context of the webcontainer, how would it inject it ?

agree since EJB is in container naming context

Thanks for the reply Joshy. So even in distributed environment DI will not work. Things seems clearer after re-reading.
