Error casting looked up ejb

I'm just trying to get a working example up. I am using rad and running this on the built in websphere server version seven. The app that I am eventually going to be developing with EJBs will be using JEE5 so I cannot use the @EJB annotation outside of the container so I am learning how to do the lookup.

The error msg that I get is this:

Error 500: java.lang.ClassCastException: ejb.EJSLocal0SLHelloEJB_9fbc1047 incompatible with ejb.HelloEJB

Here is the code for the servelet

And here is the web.xml

This is the EJB

And here is the local interface

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Does it work if you cast to HelloEJBLocal? The idea of the interfaces is to refer to them rather than bean implementation.
