Post the code where you are doing a PortableRemoteObject.narrow. Also, are you sure you are casting to the right type.

Obtain the environment naming context of the application client.
Context myEnv = (Context)initial.lookup("java:comp/env");

The java:comp/env name is bound to the environment naming context of the ConverterClient component.

Retrieve the object bound to the name ejb/SimpleConverter.
Object objref = myEnv.lookup("ejb/SimpleConverter");

The ejb/SimpleConverter name is bound to an enterprise bean reference, a logical name for the home of an enterprise bean. In this case, the ejb/SimpleConverter name refers to the ConverterHome object. The names of enterprise beans should reside in the java:comp/env/ejb subcontext.

Narrow the reference to a ConverterHome object.
ConverterHome home =
(ConverterHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(objref,

Creating an Enterprise Bean Instance
To create the bean instance, the client invokes the create method on the ConverterHome object. The create method returns an object whose type is Converter. The remote Converter interface defines the business methods of the bean that the client can call. When the client invokes the create method, the EJB container instantiates the bean and then invokes the ConverterBean.ejbCreate method. The client invokes the create method as follows:

Converter currencyConverter = home.create();

Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: Object is not of remote type converter.

This clearly states that Home Type not compatible with Object you got.

So, you can check following things,

1. Check your ejb-jar.xml, that for the name you registered for this particular bean and the name you are using to get matches.

2. Check HOME class name(including package structure) you give for that particular bean type is correct.

If this is also not working, then post ejb-jar.xml.

You trying to find "ejb/SimpleConverter":

Object objref = myEnv.lookup("ejb/SimpleConverter");

Just make sure that "ejb/SimpleConverter" is correct name for ConverterHome.

It looks like something else is binded with name "ejb/SimpleConverter".
