Local Lookup Problem in WSAD!!

This topic has been discussed in detail in many forums, but i am yet to find a solution, please help me here!!

I am trying to lookup a local entity bean from a session bean:
//jndiName = java:comp/env/ejb/EntityBMP ,
Object obj = initialContext.lookup( jndiName );
I have tried almost every combination of providing the jndi name, but i get the following exceptions.

I am getting the following exception when i try to use the jndi name directly :
First component in name ejb/EntityBMP not found.

When i try to use java:comp/env/ejb/EntityBMP, i am getting the following exception:
Name comp/env/ejb not found in context "java:"

I have declared a reference as shown :
< !-- Bean managed Entity Beans -->
<entity id="EntityBMPBean">
<ejb-local-ref id="EJBLocalRef_1121607049168">


The binding is as shown:
<ejbBindings xmi:id="EnterpriseBeanBinding_7" jndiName="ejb/EntityBMP">
<enterpriseBean xmi:type="ejb:Entity" href="META-INF/ejb-jar.xml#EntityBMPBean"/>
<ejbRefBindings xmi:id="EjbRefBinding_1121607049168" jndiName="EntityBMP">
<bindingEjbRef xmi:type="common:EJBLocalRef" href="META-INF/ejb-jar.xml#EJBLocalRef_1121607049168"/>

Could some please tell what could be missing ??

Prefix local:ejb to the jndi name.
So let your jndi name when you create the bean be ejb/<bean name>.
When you look up prefix local:ejb to the jndi name so you will lookup using

local:ejb/ejb/<bean name>.
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
