My EJB jar is packaged in EAR and deployed succesfullt in JBOSS.

Now I am run a java class like below.

Now I am getting javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: AreaBean not bound
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getObject(
at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.lookup(
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)

when running the java file.

Please help......

Hello Suhas,

Issue seems to be with your JNDI name. Kindly check your console again as to what your JNDI name was when the EJB got deployed.

This post has no information about the environment. Kindly let us know about the environment (Version of JBOSS and Version of EJB )being used. Please note that post JEE6 JBOSS the defult bindings have changed a lot. Kindly check the JEE6 specification for more details (If your JBOSS is running on either 6 or 7).

For instance in JBOSS 5 the bindings happen as follows

RemoteClassName/remote (please note class name here is not fully qualified class name). You can check the JNDI name in the trace while its getting deployed. A sample is given below.

15:21:36,237 INFO [JBossASKernel] Created KernelDeployment for: SmapleEJB.jar

The ones in bold denote the JNDI Names. You can use both of them to invoke.

Hope this helps

Thanks and regards,

Better late than never.
