I know in EJB application client and web client use JNDI for look up beans.
I have read in a article saying below,

Client uses JNDI to lookup for a proxy of your bean and invokes method on that proxy


what is meant by for a proxy of your bean here?
Also why we have to use JNDI look up for fetch the bean? what are other possible ways?

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
