I, for one, dont know what BDK is - didnt they just catch that guy in Kansas?

Do you see your class in the jar? What were the 'necessary steps' you followed? Could you include the error you got?

There's tons of differences between regular java beans (basically just classes being used) and EJBs.. too many to go into detail here, but at least now you know theyre not the same thing...

BDK = beans development kit, not BTK = bind, torture, kill.

That is a basic Java Bean. EJB's are an entirely different animal. When I see them I generally run away screaming.
