Hi All,
I have a doubt on EJB Home interfaces,And I am new to EJB ,I am refering Headfirst EJB and using Netbean IDE for learning.I am able to create a session bean and remote interface but not able to create Home interface, I also refered and I followed the instruction as said
Creating the ConverterBean Enterprise Bean
The enterprise bean templates automatically create all of the classes and interfaces

necessary for the enterprise bean and register the enterprise bean in the

EJB module's deployment descriptor.

1. In the Projects window, right-click the ConverterApp-EJBModule node

and choose New

→Session Bean.
2. In the EJB Name field, type

Converter. In the Package field, type converter.
Set the bean to be stateless and remote and click Finish.


The IDE creates the following classes: The enterprise bean class. All of the EJB infrastructure
methods are generated automatically and are hidden in a code

fold. The remote interface . The remote interface usually
defines the business methods that a client can call. The business methods

are implemented in the enterprise bean code. Because the IDE enforces

best coding practices, it actually registers all of the business methods in a

remote business interface, which the remote interface extends. The business interface . Presently this
class is empty, but as we add business methods to the bean this class will

be populated. The home interface. A home interface
defines the methods that allow a client to create, find, or remove an enterprise



but not able to create and .

Which version of Netbeans are you using? My NetBeans always generates the home, remote, remote business, and the bean. Try to download the latest one, 5.5 (stable) and see if it's working.

SCJP 5.0, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCDJWS 1.4

I go file--> new project--->EJB module then it creates ejb module
then right on ejb module-->new session bean(adive)-->stateless-->remote then it creates only a adviceBean and AdviceRemote
