    NameNotFoundException in JBoss 6.1 but not in 4.0.4

    petal1 Newbie



      I am migrating an application from JBoss 4.0.4 to JBoss 6.1. I have a jar that has some version 2.1 EJBs. One of the session beans has a static initializer that looks up an entity bean. That works ok in 4.0.4 but gives this error when starting JBoss 6.1 - "javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: mymod not bound".



          MyEntityBeanLocalHome lhpt = MyEntityBeanUtil.getLocalHome();

          Collection things = lhpt.findAll();

          populate a static HashMap with things


      The exception is thrown at the getLocalHome line above, which does the following:

      InitialContext ic = new InitialContext(null);

      Object objRef = ic.lookup("ejb/mymod/MyEntityBeanLocal");          <-- fails here

      if (java.rmi.Remote.class.isAssignableFrom(MyEntityBeanLocalHome.class))

          return javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject.narrow(objRef, MyEntityBeanLocalHome.class);


          return objRef;

      I am a little surprised the code works in JBoss 4.0.4 - after all, why should the entity bean have been bound to JNDI at the point I try to look it up.

      What is the correct solution for this? Should I move the code in the static initializer to the ejbActivate method?

      Thank you. for any useful input.
