singletone ServiceLocator

Hello,
I'm using ServiceLocator pattern to locate EJB's and other JNDI resources. Currently I have singletone ServiceLocator, but I'm not sure about this implementation style. I really hate singletones, because they can not be subclassed, garbaged, initialized in custom way etc. But I can not figure out any alternative way to use ServiceLocator in EJB layer and BusinessDelegate layer. These layers has no access to general scope (like ServletContext). Any ideas?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
