Hi, I have been trying to find out what exception is thrown when an EJB which supports only local interfaces is invoked by a non-local client. In WebLogic 6.1, I deployed my EJB in a particular application - myapp and tried to access the EJB from a jsp running in DefaultWebApp. Both are running on the same server...myserver. The lookup succeeds, but when I try to cast the object to the local interface it throws a ClassCastException. The same cast written in a local client succeeds. Can someone explain this? Also what is the required behaviour of the container when a local EJB is accessed by a remote client?

Good question. Gotto check up the EJB 2.0 specification for this. Will try and do that when free.
