Remote Session Bean looking up a Local Entity Bean

I have tried all manner of methods to try and look this up is WAS 5.1, all to no avail. I have tried to get the Remote Session Bean to find the Local Bean using the "java:comp/env" namespace, the "local:" namespace and WAS 5.1 inside RSA 6.0 is throwing IWAD0402E Could not perform lookup with JNDI name.

I am new to WAS and cannot find nor figure the means its JNDI is using for local and remote beans, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Can you post your ejb-jar.xml deployment descriptor? If it contains an EJB reference to the EJB (best practice), then you should have a mapping in WAS between this reference (which you use to do your JNDI lookup) and the actual JNDI name of the referenced bean. If there is no EJB reference, then you must lookup the real JNDI name that the EJB is bound to. I am not knowledgable about WAS, but I think you will find the JNDI names of EJBs are stored in the bindings file named ibm-ejb-jar-bnd.xmi under the directory META-INF.
