Hi, From the mbean startup I need to create an SequencerEJB ejb object that is a local interface SequencerLHomeIf and SequencerLIf. The ejb is for creating sequence numbers so I want to initialize it in the mbean. I do not want anybody else to create it once it is created so I do not want it to be a remote interface. When I try to lookup the jndicontext for the ejb it gives an error. If I change the interface to be remote it works. Can this be done ? Hope this is not too confusing.
