I have written a client to call a session bean. I am loading the initial context and provider url as


But I get a exception as,

javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Cannot instantiate class: org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext [Root exception is java.lang.InstantiationException: org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext]
at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.init(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.<init>(Unknown Source)
at slsb.CounterClient.main(

But I have loaded the jar file jnp-client.jar in the classpath. ANy idea why this happens?

Instead of using a -D command line option, why not include a file instead. Then let's go from there.

You're right in setting commandline options but you're setting the wrong ones.
Setting properties inside the application is a bad idea, it makes your application too tightly linked with a specific server implementation and location.
