I am having a Iplanet 4.1 server talking to Weblogic 5.1 both on the same box. The weblogic is up and all EJBs are deployed correctly on it. When the Iplanet tries to make a JNDI call with the correct JNDI address, it fails saying that the Lookup for EJB failed. I had a NSAPI plugin for iplanet, but took it out since it was not helping me. Is there anything I am missing here ? Someone told me I need two separate code bases. Is it true, could someone help me , thanks a lot.

iPlanet (particularly 4.x version) web server? (not app server?) ...

in either case, iPlanet code to do JNDI lookups is non-standard.

I did an EJB/JavaMail/JDBC Datasource project that worked perfectly under the RI server provided with Sun's j2sdkee1.2.1 download. But under iPlanet, I couldn't get any JNDI-dependant code working.

After ripping out all that code and doing hard coding, I discovered in the iPlanet docs the real code needed. For iPlanet app server, they had re-done the J2EE tutorial provided with the j2sdkee1.2.1 download. In this (iplanet) tutorial, you could see the lines of code that needed to be re-written for the code to work under iPlanet. Guess what code it was? JNDI lookups. For EJB's. And probably for everything else, since like I mentioned, I couldn't get Javamail or JDBC Datasources either.

Sorry I can't help you further, but it perhaps points you in the right direction.
Tongue wrestling. It's not what you think. And here, take this tiny ad. You'll need it.
