Access remote EJB 3 with tomcat

Hi all,

I'm struggling a bit with something...I'd like to access an ejb that is deployed in glassfish from a servlet that I have deployed in tomcat.
The only way I manage to access it is to have both of them deployed in glassfish.What is the correct way to make the ejb available to Tomcat?

I followed the tutorial at http://technology.amis.nl/blog/1368/connecting-to-an-ejb-30-remote-sessionbean-from-tomcat but the example was for Tomcat 5.5 and EJB2.x.I couldn't even find any lib OR shared/lib in my netbeans bundled install of tomcat.When I try to run it I get a javax.naming.NoInitialContextException.The exact same code(with and without lookup) works when I deploy both the servlet and the bean in glassfish.

Alternate approach would be to use Apache TomEE, which is a version of Tomcat with EJB support already added.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
