call a remote EJB

Roberto Perencio Newbie

hi everybody
i have a problem trying to lookup an EJB from a standalone client, using the queue example of JBoss.
I do this:

ic = new InitialContext();
fe = (Interface)ic.lookup("/JndiName");

in jndi.properties i set the server url properly in this way:

I get this excpetion:
 [java] java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException

Any suggestion?

    Hi Bob,

    I'm not sure what I'm looking at here. The JBossMessaging Queue example itself doesn't have anything to do with EJB's - it's a pure jms example. So maybe you adapted it to do something other than produce and consume a message? If so, can you give some more information?

    Does the unmodified Queue example run for you?

    i have exactly the same problem in my standalone java-client. Same exception, when i try to call a method of a remote-ejb.

    Error occurrs only since and with jboss 4.20CR1 "official released" Version. Before we used a svn-checkout of 4.20 from around November 06, and this version didn't make this problem.

    using following initial-context settings:

    public static Context getInitialContext()
     throws javax.naming.NamingException {
     Properties env = new Properties();
     env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://");
     env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "admin");
     env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "admin");
     return new InitialContext(env);

    Ejb-reference lookup seems to be ok, but when i try to call a concrete method of the ejb-reference, jboss throws error above.

    Any idea ?

    It seems for me like a problem with the DEFAULT the classpath and/or included jars, which ECLIPSE 3.2 per default sets for the test-client.

    If i manually add all necessary jars of jboss to my test client project, then programm will run ok. But if i let eclipse determine the classpath (via Button "default"), the above error will thrown.

    Remember: This misbehaivor only occurs with jboss 4.20CR1 release of march 07, NOT with svn-checkout of november 06.

    I met with this problem while using JBossAOP 1.3 Libraries provided by JBossIDE-1.5-ALL. Removing the libraies and add those jars in ${jboss.home}/client, it works. Not sure which jar causes this problem, maybe jboss-aspect-library-jdk50.jar

    The exception

    java.lang.Exception: Can not make remoting client invocation due to not being connected to server

    is thrown when org.jboss.remoting.Client.invoke() is called before Client.connect() is called. This restriction exists in Remoting versions 2.0.0 and above, but not before. The current version of org.jboss.aspects.remoting.InvokeRemoteInterceptor, which comes with JBossAS 4.2, calls Client.connect(), but the version that comes with JBossAS 4.0.5 does not.

    InvokeRemoteInterceptor is found in jboss-4.2.0.GA/server/default/deploy/jboss-aop-jdk50.deployer/jboss-aspect-library-jdk50.jar and jboss-4.2.0.GA/client/jboss-aspect-jdk50-client.jar. Make sure you're using the correct versions of these jars.

    It seems, only version 1.3 of jboss-aspect-library-jdk50.jar comes bundled with actual jboss-ide 2.0.0Beta2. See eclipse-plugin org.jboss.ide.jdt.aop.core_1.2.0.Beta2 in ECLIPS_HOME/plugins-folder ...

    I've posted a note on the jboss-ide forum,


    about using a newer version of jboss-aspect-library-jdk50.jar in their next release.

    copy \jboss-4.2.0.GA\server\all\deploy\jboss-aop-jdk50.deployer\jboss-aspect-library-jdk50.jar

    then ,it's OK.
