hi all,

I have an EJB deployed in a JBoss server on a machine. I want to invoke another EJB deployed on a remote server. I want to use the @EJB annotation to inject the remote EJB reference. How do I specify the remote server url in this annotation? Or do I specify this in some xml file?

I got this paragraph from http://trailblazer.demo.jboss.com/EJB3Trail/serviceobjects/injection/


EJB 3.0 dependency injection only works in the local JNDI. Hence you cannot inject objects from remote servers.



Does this mean that I cannot use @EJB annotation from remote clients?

Thanks,
Devi

As far as I know latest versions of JBoss does not support a concept of Application Client Container that allows you to use @EJB injection from a remote client.

See http://manning.com/panda/ for examples in Glassfish and OracleAS how they support DI in the client side. I had to change the code to use lookup for porting it to JBoss

regards
Debu

Debu,

Thanks for your response. I downloaded the code from your site, but could not find the code for locating remote beans from a servlet or EJB using @EJB annotation. Where do we specify the jndi properties in this case? Do we use a jndi.properties file like we do for standalone clients?

Thanks,
Devi
