I've got a site hosted on a tomcat 3.3 and I'm trying to connect to an EJB on a remote WebSphere machine. I'm having trouble establishing the Initial Context. I'm providing the Initial Context a properties object with an entry for the provider URL and an entry for the IC factory. For the factory, I'm using "com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory" Originally, I was getting a ClassNotFoundError on the above class. I included a jar file into my lib that contains that class, but now I'm getting a ClassNotFoundError on com.ibm.ejs.ras.TraceElement Does anyone know what all I need to include in my lib directory/classpath to get this puppy to run? Thanks!
