I have found the solution. I guess I should have walked away from it a few more times before making the post.
So what has to be done to access ejbs like this:
Object wHomeObject = initial.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/SAAmortBean");
? (ie using "java:comp/env/ejb/...")
what was your solution? I have code that works OK with an older 3.0 Alpha,
but not in newest beta. Get the same problem....
