    Newbie EJB3 JNDI/ENC question

    Dean Pullen Novice

      Hi all.

      (Actually posted this in EJB3 but on reflection think it's more apt in this sub-forum).

      I'm still confused as to how I should properly use EJB injection within another EJB.

      Say I have an EJB called MyBean. Within it I define the JNDI mapping to be:


      Within another EJB I grab it using:

      @EJB(name = "ejb/MyBean", beanInterface = MyBeanLocal.class)

      Now currently, I then look it up using

      InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
      MyBeanLocal myBeanLocal = (MyBeanLocal ) ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/MyBean");

      In EJB3, what is the best way of actually injecting a bean into the local JNDI and referencing it, ensuring application server portability?
      I'm still very unsure I'm not going way over the top by ensuring it's injected into the local JNDI from the ENC and then looked up in the local JNDI.

      Any direction would be most helpful, thanks in advance.
