Hi All,
I'm trying to use EJBs from one application
I'll call "A") in a different (web) application (I'll call "B"). Both applications are deployed.
Application A has four EJB classes (that I'll call A1, A2, A3, A4).
I have <ejb-ref> tags in B's web.xml that give JNDI names (like ejb/A1) to the EJBs in A. I have the home and remote interface classes in the
WEB-INF/classes directory for B. In my JSP in B,
I have this code:
context = new InitialContext();
A4Home a4Factory = (A4Home)
but the JSP throws a naming exception that looks like this:
javax.naming.NamingException: Error instantiating web-app JNDI-context: No location specified and
no suitable instance of the type 'mypackage.A1' found for the ejb-ref ejb/A1 at

I'm thinking there's a need for a jndi.properties file somewhere, but I can't figure out where to put it. I've put it in WEB-INF/classes, WEB-INF,
the web-app root, but no joy.
Any ideas?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
