This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Notice that the above client code uses the standard EJB 2.x client programming model. It does not need to know that the target bean is implemented with EJB 3.0.
My understanding is that in a 3.0 EJB's business object is retreivd when we look up in JNDI. initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/tax"). How is the above code getting te HOME object? 3.0 EJB does not have a home, then how will the above code work?
