Where is this java application file located? Try placing the file in EJB project and J2EE project. If the file is in Java client project - it wouldn't find the EJB context.

There could be some other ways to create the EJBContext - if you want to test it real quick, the above ways should work

I wouldn't really agree to the comment that certification is just a piece of paper. In fact, in this competitive world, employers are giving more value to the certifications nowadays. Being in the consulting world, it is becoming a sales pitch to mention the number of certified people in the company.
I do agree that just having certification and not having any real world experience will be of much help. But just consider two people who have same number of years experience, and one person has more certification than the other, obviously the person who has the certification will be better off. Certification QUANTIFIES the skill set.
Just took the exam today. Fortunately no problems with the Drag or Drop questions or anything with the exam itself.
I am one of those folks who was not ready to take the exam thinking that the 400 mark would be over in the first week of beta itself. Was surprised to see the post from Evelyn on 24th of June that still there was time to take the exam and get certified for free
So this is for people who don't/didn't have much time to prepare. Just go through the EJB 2.0 specs and all the tips that are posted here in the ranch. The tips and EJBBetaPreview (very very helpful ) from Kathy, cheat sheets from Valentin, exam feedback from ranch hands and the mock questions posted are really helpful. Just go through these and don't worry about not reading any extra material.
I found CMP Entity bean questions little difficult as I have never worked with entity beans before. MDBs and EJB-QL questions were pretty straight forward. Not many tricky questions either.
I hope I passed. Even otherwise it is good to read and understand the complete specs. Good luck for all those who are going to take the exam.
ejbPassivate would be more appropriate, as ejbRemove method may not be called to remove the bean, if it is already in the passivated state.
