Problem invoking an EJB method from a JAVA client

I have written and deployed a EJB object on an J2EE server. I am invoking it from a JAVA client. Below is the source code for the java client:

package headfirst;

import javax.naming.*;
import java.rmi.*;
import javax.rmi.*;
import headfirst.*;
import javax.ejb.*;

public class AdviceClient

public void go()
Context ic = new InitialContext();

if(ic != null)
System.out.println("Got the Context");
Object o = ic.lookup("Advisor");

if(o != null)
System.out.println("Got the Lookup Object");

AdviceHome home = (AdviceHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(o,AdviceHome.class);

if(home != null)
System.out.println("Got the ADviceHome");

Advice advisor = home.create();

if(advisor != null)
System.out.println("Got the Advisor");

catch(Exception e)

public static void main(String[] args)
new AdviceClient().go();

I have compiled this code using the client jar created by J2EE deploy tool. By while running the code, I got the following exception:

C:\Rohan\JavaProject\EJB\Advice>java headfirst.AdviceClient
Got the Context
Got the Lookup Object
Got the ADviceHome
Got the Advisor

Can anybody help me understand why this is happening?
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
