Open Source JNDI Service?

Does anyone know of an open source lightweight JNDI compliant naming service?

I need to use a rmi over iiop to look up a EJB service whilst using the IBM JDK, HOWEVER I can't use the Websphere based kit (which is the only way that I've managed to get it working so far!)

I don't want a full JBoss installation.

How about a "minimal" JBoss setup? The architecture of JBoss is such that you only need to deploy the services you are going to use. Look at the minimal directory - it comes with JNDI and the deployer service. Nothing else.

Well, I'm just looking at Sun's JNDI implementation, turns out that you can pick and chose the bits that you want, so I thought that I might try to get the COS naming service running on top of IBM's JDK..

lol, gutton for punishment!!

Then maybe I'll try to extract the naming service stuff (JBossNS) from a JBoss install and try running that on its own..

Wonder if it needs to be running or its possible to call it on demand..

thanks, unfortunately I need it for rmi over iiop rather than ldap.
I agree. Here's the link:
