That's not a web module; it is a main method. Are you running it as an application client or a regular Java class? If the later, you need to do a JNDI lookup and not dependency injection.

I have also tried using a servlet instead of the standalone class, but the same exception comes.

Thanks pulkit, i have tried this way its working.
But i want to use dependency injection instead of jndi lookup.
I have googled a couple of examples (using dependency injection for jndi look up instead of using initial context for lookup), but for me the business interface instance comes as null.

You actually have 2 questions here.

1) Injection into standalone java clients - This isn't possible unless you use an application client container. See this previous discussion

2) Injection into servlets - This is allowed. If you are not able to inject into servlet, then see if the issue is related to this

See..according to my experience dependency injection gets failed due to following reason :

1)You are using server which does not support DI in web JBoss 4.x(DI work in EJB not in WEB)
2)You must have giving wrong JNDI name.Please refer to JNDI console of your server and see naming convention they follow.
I agree. Here's the link:
