A collegue of mine asked me if it is possible to migrate a webapp from AS6 to AS7.
This webapp, among other things, has a servlet that makes a call to a remote EJB running on Weblogic 9.2 (!). The war has all the jars in WEB-INF/lib (weblogic.jar and client jar).
It works fine on 6.1.0.Final.
I know that 7.0.1 does not yet support remote EJB and remote JNDI client, but something strange happens: once deployed, the lookup works fine, but the returned object is null. Here is the code:
Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
Context ctx = new InitialContext(env);
Object obj = ctx.lookup("com.foo.bar.MyBean");
// obj is null!
I tried to set a wrong jndi name and the exception is correct (javax.naming.NameNotFoundException), so the lookup seems to work fine.
Why the returned object is null?
Is it a side effect of the lack of remote JNDI client support of 7.0.1?
Will it work on 7.1.0?
