getInitParameter with a MessageDrivenBean

I need a way to retrieve some intialization parameters for my MessageDrivenBean. If this was a servlet I would put the info into the web.xml file and then call servletContext.getInitParameter("X") where "X" was the name of my parameter in web.xml. Is there a comparable place to store these types of parameters for a MessageDrivenBean and what method do I call to get them?

Thanks for the help.

Got it. This is what I needed to do:

Add entries to my ejb-jar.xml file:


Add code to my MessageDrivenBean:

String SMTPMailServer = (String)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/SMTPMailServer");
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
