DeploymentException encountered when trying to deploy an Enterprise Bean in WebSphere

I have been trying to deploy a stateless session bean in the trial version of Websphere App Server, Advanced Edition (V3.5) on AIX.
I created an initial JAR file containing the bean, home and remote intrface class files. I then created a deployable JAR file using jetace.
When i tried to deploy the Jar file in WebSphere I received the following error.....
EJBDeploy:generateTies(): Generating ties for implementation classes...
rmic command line:
rmic -classpath

/usr/WebSphere/AppServer/deployedEJBs/HelloEJBDepWorkingDir/__ejbjar .EJSRemoteHome
rmic return code = 1 Deployment[createEJSJar] failed.
IVJ0805E: There were errors during generation of stubs/ties for the interface classes.
I checked the "__ejbjar" folder and found that the EJSRemoteHome file was not being created.
Can you please let me know what the reason for this error could be and how I can work-around this error ?
Is there any specific setting in WebSphere/jetace environment that I may have overlooked?
i had tried to deploy the EJB in an Application server that I had created. Though I encountered an error while deploying this EJB,i was able to deploy an EJB (jar file) that was provided with the WebSphere example files.
The EJB classes that I created have been included below, for your reference.
The EJB classes that I created .........
Home interface Remote Interface -
Session Bean -
The code for each is given below:
import javax.ejb.*;
import java.rmi.*;
public interface HelloHome extends EJBHome {
Hello create()
throws RemoteException, CreateException;
import javax.ejb.*;
import java.rmi.*;
public interface Hello extends EJBObject {
String sayHello() throws RemoteException;
import javax.ejb.*;
import java.rmi.*;
public class HelloEJB implements SessionBean {
String str="Hello";
public void ejbCreate() {

public String sayHello() throws RemoteException {
return str;
public void setSessionContext(SessionContext sc){}
public void ejbRemove() throws RemoteException {}
public void ejbActivate() throws RemoteException {}
public void ejbPassivate() throws RemoteException {}

while creating the ejb-jar file i think you have to make that jar file a serialized one(ser file). I think you have missed out this step.

I have used the jetace tool provided with websphere to create the deployable JAR file. This tool creates a ser file. The steps I followed are:
a) I created a JAR file containing the class files of the remote, home interface and the session bean (i.e. HelloHome.class, Hello.class, HelloEJB.class).
b) I launched the jetace tool and selected this JAR file to be read by jetace.
c) The jetace tool created a ser file. I then saved the deployable JAR file. The files present in the deployable JAR file created by jetace are :
1. Home interface class file
2. Remote interface class file.
3. session bean class file.
4. ser file.
5. comments.dep
6. comments.env
7. meta-inf/
So, u see, the jetace tool creates a ser file. The deployable JAR file is given as input to WebSphere.
(i.e. after i selected create->EJB Bean option, I browsed to the location of the deployable JAR file).
On double-clicking the JAR file, the ser file created by jetace is seen. On selecting this, a message box appears where I select the "deploy only" option.
At the time of deployment (when WebSphere tries to generate stubs and tie classes), I get the error mentioned in my first mail.
