1. can someone please tell me why i'm getting error. how should i resolve it.
2.when i'm using xdoclet to generate bean, home interface and xml files. it automatically generating jndi name. like this

public static final String COMP_NAME="java:comp/env/ejb/Wish";
public static final String JNDI_NAME="Wish";

so i commented them and used my own jndi name in weblogic -ejb-jar.xml. is it wrong to do that?. how come these variables have me declared in my home interface. why and how are they used. and i did not understand the structure --> java:comp/env/ejb/Wish .. what does it mean?. i'm a newbie . so please explain clearly.
I agree. Here's the link:
