Iam trying to run my first application on WEBLOGIC SERVER 8.1. I have already deploed class file on server.i have already set path for my client jar .
When I use my client run on JDK to access the application.
I got following errror::::

Context context= null;
Hashtable h = new Hashtable();

h.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory");

context = new InitialContext(h);
Object obj = context.lookup("ServerObject"); //Server ejb-name


ServerHome serverhome =(ServerHome) javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject.narrow(context.lookup("ServerObject"),ServerHome.class);
Server server = serverhome.create();
String Message = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter Your Message");
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, server.performAction(Message) );

catch(Exception e){
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null ,"Exception is " +e);

Well, the error basically speaks for itself. The weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory class was not found. You need to make sure you include the wlclient.jar on your client's CLASSPATH.
Moving to the WebLogic Forum for further discussion...
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: NoInitialContext Exception
It's not a secret anymore!
