This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I am trying to make a client app connect to a EJB on a WAS 5.0 server. I am using a RMI/IIOP connection. Any call that attempts to access these components fails to return. For instance, a initialcontext.lookup can be called but will never return. Same with a listbindings. If I try to list the bindings in the cell area it fails to return.
This only occurs on our production servers. They are setup in a cluster. The same application on our test server (same OS and WAS) works fine. I can instantiate the EJBs and use them as designed. No exceptions are thrown and I can't find any reference to these connections in any WAS log files. I am using WSAD with a IBM JDK.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
