After having built an EJB 2 Session bean what does the client need to access the bean deployed on the server. Does he need some jar files to access the stub ?

On the client side we call PortableRemoteObject.narrow (o, MyEJBHome.class); so the MyEJBHome must be available on the client side. My question is what all must be given to the client so that he can set these in the class path ?

Anyone ?

The client will need access to the bean interfaces(remote/local interface and home/localhome interface). No need of the actual implementation class. If remote classloading is enabled then the client will not even require the interfaces.
