    NameNotFoundException for EJB Handle of a Stateful Bean

    Sanjay Kumar Newbie

      Hi folks !

       

      Our design is like this:

       

      A server keeps a cache of javax.ejb.Handle objects of Stateful Session EJBs.

      Clients get the handle by a key using something like:

       

      javax.ejb.Handle handle - SessionEngineEJB.getHandle(key).

      UserProxyEJB ejbProxy = (UserProxyEJB) PortableRemoteObject(handle.getEJBObject(), UserProxyEJB.class);

       

      This used to work out of box in JBoss 4.0.1.

      But is not always working in JBoss 4.3.0.GA (we get sporadic exceptions)

       

      I checked thet Handle at least inside server instance is valid.

      Problem is that we can not seem to be able to use it in the client.

       

      Exact error is:

       

      NameNotFoundException: Name UserproxyEJB is not bound in this context

      at org.jboss.proxy.ejb.handle.StatefulHandleImpl.getEJBObject(StatefulHandleImpl.java:184)

       

      First I had to add following two lines in server/conf/jndi.properties file for it to work at all:

       

      java.naming.factory.initial=org.jboss.naming.NamingContextFactory

      java.naming.provider.url=jnp://host:port

       

      My question is:

       

      What need to be done for seralization of EJB handles to be full-proof for Stateful Session beans ?

       

      thanks,
