I've got a stateless session bean with a remote interface
deployed to a jboss 4.2.2 server. My client code to test
the bean works to perfection.

However, I decided to put it in a web app and use the bean.
My 1st question is if my webapp is deployed to the same
server, does my InitialContext environmentdiffer from that
in my client code?

My next question is What could cause a PortableRemoteObject exception
when I call narrow(). Could it be I need to have a Local interface
vice Remote?
