First what we use:
We have on one computer a Jboss Server and additional to that a tomcat server in an own jvm.
Now we want to access the EJB's in the Jboss container from a servlet container on a different computer. The Servlet we use is The servlet is the InterestServlet from JBoss manual examples. The webapp works fine when starting JBoss with integrated tomcat..
The source is:
public void init() throws ServletException
Properties props=new Properties();
props.put("java.naming.factory.url.pkgs","org.jboss.naming rg.jnp.interfaces");
// Get a naming context
InitialContext jndiContext = new InitialContext(props);
// Get a reference to the Interest Bean
line 45: Object ref = jndiContext.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/Interest");
// Get a reference from this to the Bean's Home interface
interestHome = (InterestHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref, InterestHome.class);
catch(Exception e)
throw new ServletException("Failed to lookup java:comp/env/ejb/Interest", e);
But we got the following error:
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: comp not bound
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getObject(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.lookup(
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)

Do you have java:comp/env/ejb/Interest mapped as an ejb-ref in your web applications deployment descriptors?
Try changing java:comp/env/ejb/Interest to the EJB's actual JNDI name and see if that works.

what we tried before is that we used the built-in tomcat server of jboss. There the same code worked. So i think the mapping should be correct.
On the other hand we are also not able to browse the JNDI directory with a tool like Netbeans JNDI Browser from an other computer.
Any other idea ?
I agree. Here's the link:
