HI. I have the HF book. In chapter 1 there is an example called the Advice Guy. I got it compiling and everything but at runtime the JNDI cannot find the bean (when the context does the lookup). The server is running as well as the Bean. And I did set the right bean JNDI name. But it just wont do it. I dont have the excact error with me, but I do know it was that the JNDI couldnt find the Bean.

What else could I be missing? Thank you for your help.

hummmmm..... I was doing a little research and I found an example that does a lookup and it includes the whole path, like this:


humm.... I thought you did have to do that. The HF book doesnt show the whole path.

Which app server you are using. You can check the JNDI tree that the name of the bean is registered there .

Oh I would really like to chech that tree. Now for the App Server that I am using well here is what I am doing (I am new at EJB):

I am using the newst J2EE server (1.4). I know that b/c I downloaded it a few days ago. I am using the deploytool to start my EJB and its JNDI name. The client I am coding it in Eclipse (I dont think that matters anyways).

In the deploytool it does show that my ejb is running. But what else can I do?

Here is the exception:


Here is the code line:

Object o = ic.lookup("java:comp/env/Advisor");

I have tried also:

Object o = ic.lookup("Advisor");

and yes Advisor is the JNDI name for the EJB Object.

Any ideas :roll:

OH and I start the server from the J2EE 1.4 SDK start menu where it says start default server. Is that correct? AH!
