I developed a simple Hello Portlet using JSF. The user has to insert his name and click the button and appears Hello (name). It works fine. I also developed a simple Session Bean (EJB) that performs the Hello method. It works fine alone (inside JBoss Portal 2.0 and 2.0.1RC2). Then I update my application so the JSF application call the EJB method to performs the Hello. At this point nothing is working. Inside the JSF application I was not able to create the Home Interface (The home interface is null!). I tried to deploy the application in a single EAR file and then in two separate file (war and jar) but without success. Has someone tried this type of application?
