Obtaining a Local Ref in WebSphere 5.0

Hi,
I am using WebSphere studio 5.0 to develop some EJBs. In particular I have an entity bean that I'd like to access from a session bean using the entity beans local interface andI've been having a few problems.
I've been looking around for how to get a local ref and from what I can work out I need to use a string in the following format
java:comp/env/[jndi Bean name]
to look up the bean from the JNDI context. I have specified the ejb-local-ref in my deployment descriptor as follows:
<ejb-local-ref id="EJBLocalRef_1043116534977">
<ejb-ref-name>WeatherStation</ejb-ref-name>
<ejb-ref-type>Entity</ejb-ref-type>
<local-home>com.blah.weather.ejb.WeatherStationLocalHome</local-home>
<local>com.blah.weather.ejb.WeatherStationLocal</local>
<ejb-link>WeatherStation</ejb-link>
</ejb-local-ref>
When I deploy and try and get a reference the lookup fails and on further inspection (via a session bean that lists the bindings for a particular string) there is nothing bound under the java:comp/env at all. I figure that this can't be correct and I must be doing something stupid!
Can anyone give me some pointers on how to get a local ref in websphere 5.0? thanks in advance
regards
Boyd
