    Cannot use JNDI lookup in Arquillian

    Hiep Le Canh Newbie

      I have an issue when I am getting a bean by using EJB injection. Below is what I am doing:



      public class ITArquillianTest {


          //MyManager interface already exist in myear's module.


          MyManager myManager;



          public static EnterpriseArchive  createDeployment() {

              EnterpriseArchive ear = ShrinkWrap.create(EnterpriseArchive.class,"myear.ear");


              //this ear file is already deploy successfully in JBoss 7, so I extract to D:\\cygwin\\home\\...\\myear for creating Arquillian ear.


                  importDirectory(new File("D:\\cygwin\\home\\...\\myear"));


              return ear; 




          public void testIfNotNull() throws Exception {

              Assert.assertNotNull("null", myManager);     //----> myManager return null




      I do not know why myManager always return null. Please let me know how to fix it

          Thanks Aslak for your answer but it seems not working. I am using @EJB(mappedName="MyManagerBean") and add @Stateless(mappedName="MyManagerBean") in MyManagerBean class but it does not work.


          I also try to get that object by using JNDI name like:


          Context ic = getContext();
          obj = ic.lookup("java:global/earName/jarName/beanName");  

          Below is getContext() method:

          Context getContext() throws NamingException {
              Hashtable<String, String> ht = new Hashtable<String, String>();

              return new InitialContext(ht);


          but the exception is thrown. Could you please give me some idea to fix it?

            When you run the test, in eht ejboss as 7 console output you should see where the EJB is bound.. Does it not work to put on of those jndi names in EJB.mappedName ?

              Yes, Aslak. I try to use these JNDI names:









              But all of them do not work (MyBean still null). I am wondering that I am using the right annotation for deployment method or not. Currently I am using :



                  public static EnterpriseArchive  createDeployment() {...}


              I think I should change testable to true instead of false, right?. But when I change it to true. The exception is thrown (after both arquillian-service and my ear was deployed successful) . Below is the exception:


              Tests run: 1, Failures: 0, Errors: 1, Skipped: 0, Time elapsed: 69.044 sec <<< FAILURE!

              Please let my know you idea on that.

                testable=false means you will executing on the client side and all your EJBs need to be Remoteable to be reached.


                The exception your seeing is most likely related to this, or atleast you can try the same solution: http://community.jboss.org/message/623963
