    EJB dependency injection returns null in application container client

    Meena Rajnai Newbie



      I want to do some performance testing for my algorithm. I need to run the  the client from inside the container so that the time I get should be actually for the read and update rather than invoking a remote command to server.


      I am trying this example http://glassfish.java.net/javaee5/ejb/examples/Sless.html  with JBOSS 6.0 and Eclipse Indigo SR2.


      So far the ejb is being deployed on server successfully, also the Client  ENC container is starting STARTED CLIENT ENC CONTAINER: NewAppClient


      When I am runing client application from eclipse it is returning null for dependency injection. 

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

                at Main.main(Main.java:11)


      Here is code for the client



      import ejb30.Sless;

      import ejb30.SlessBean;

      public class Main {

                // @EJB(name="NewApp/SlessBean/remote-ejb30.Sless")


                   public static Sless sless;

                public static void main(String[] args) {



                      //  System.out.println("Sless bean says : " + sless.hello());




                /* (non-Java-doc)

                 * @see java.lang.Object#Object()


                public Main() {










      I have gone through this wiki tut https://community.jboss.org/wiki/HowToUseAnApplicationClientInJBoss-5to too but still unable to figure it out, how will it work.

      I have attached server log and the jar files too.


      I am not much familiar working from command line so it will be great if some one help me getting this done through eclipse IDE.
