    LocalEjbSynchronizations JNDI lookup fails despite being initialized - Seam 2.2.0 and Glassfish

    Zarar Siddiqi Newbie

      I'm getting the following exception when I try to run my application on Seam 2.2.0 and Glassfish V2. I've shown the relevant bits of the stacktrace.  I tried


      java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not start transaction

      It's complaining about the org.jboss.seam.transaction.synchronizations component not being instantiated, but I see the following in the logs:


      Component: org.jboss.seam.transaction.synchronizations, scope: EVENT, type: STATEFUL_SESSION_BEAN, class: org.jboss.seam.transaction.EjbSynchronizations, JNDI: library/EjbSynchronizations/local


      I looked at the source code for Component.java and it fails at the following line.


      Object bean = Naming.getInitialContext().lookup(jndiName);


      This indicates that the jndiName can't be found, but I don't see what I'm doing wrong.  The relevant sections of my config are below.  My ear is named library.ear so the JNDI pattern library/#{ejbName}/local should resolve correctly:


      Any help would be appreciated:
