I completed SCJP in December 2009 and after a long time i decided to take SCBCD exam. I am reading "EJB 3 in action" and writing code in Eclipse and using JBoss. I started with "Hello world" but I have difficulty working on @EJB annotation for Dependency injection. Can some one tell me how to make it work?

Hi friend,

@EJB annotation can use to inject server side beans such as Stateless, Stateful or MessageDriven into a another server side bean such as java server side application client, another EJB or or web components like servlets, JSP. But you can't use @EJB annotation in a not server side java application. Therefore you have to use JNDI lookup to inject server side beans into non server side java applications.

So vijayakrishna in your case we can't figure out what you are going to inject using @EJB. So if you post your code it will be easy to figure out what the problem is.

You can use also the @EJB annotation to inject an EJB3 bean reference in a client java application, if you run it in ACC (Aplication Client Container) that comes for example with GlassFish.

I agree. Here's the link:
