Urgent help needed

I am a newbie to java technology.
i am creating java applications using visualage for java.
I have a EJB created and tested in WTE of visualage for java(VAJ) is working fine.
I have a servlet which is also developed in VAJ is also working fine.
When i am trying to call the EJB from the servlet, it does not show any error while creating the objects of the bean.
But when i am running it, it shows a Null pointer exception.
Both the EJB and servlet are in the same package.
Please help me in get rid of this problem by providing a solution to this.
If possible please provide me the exact syntax to call a EJB from servlet through a sample code which i can run on VAJ.

here is my servler coding
InitialContext jndiContext= new InitialContext();
Object ref= jndiContext.lookup("com/ibm/ivj/wte/samples/leapyear/loginHome");
loginHome home=(loginHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,loginHome.class);
login loged= home.create();
The exceptions are handled perfectly.
The bean coding (the method that i have called)is here
System.out.println("just a try");
It does not shown any error while creating the object of the bean. but it gives the following exception
Error 500
An error has occured while processing request:http://localhost:8080/servlet/
Message: Server caught unhandled exception from servlet []: null
the <ejb-ref> in web.xml is set as follows
<description>The test of java bean</description>
please reply for this as quick as possible.
with thanks,
