Using constants for jndi names

Hi all,
In my application I have few MDBs using Queues and Topics. I also have few stateless session beans. I want to use constants ( not thru an interface or a constant class ) for the jndi names for all of them instead of actually hardcoding these names while doing the lookups in the code. I am using weblogic 8.1. Is there any way constants can be set in ejb-jar.xml or weblogic-ejb-jar.xml to achieve this.

Will appreciate any inputs.

You can always set them as environment entries in the ejb-jar.xml using the env-entry element.
