This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I have deployed a EJB application on Websphere 6.1 application server, trying to get Initial Context to get EJB reference using JNDI. But while instantiating InitialContext object, it's giving some exception -
javax.naming.NamingException: Error during resolve [Root exception is java.lang.NullPointerException]
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at com.ibm.ws.security.auth.ContextManagerImpl.login(ContextManagerImpl.java:3233)
I have disabled Administrative, Application, J2SE security in application server. still exception is thrown.
I observed one thing, while creating InitialContext, if I pass -
java.naming.security.credentials="" in HashMap, then only it's throwing above mentioned exception.
If I skip these two parameters while creating HashMap it's going through. But we have one class in which these two parameters are present and values are coming from property file. So we can't change code to ignore these two parameters while creating InitialContext. As we don't have control on this class.
