    question about local interfaces in JBoss 3.2.1

    tester1331 Newbie

      When I deploy a bean with a local interface in a separate
      jar from the session bean that uses it, I get the following
      error in jboss when my client tries to access the session bean:

      23:00:08,611 ERROR [LogInterceptor] EJBException, causedBy:
      javax.naming.NamingException: Could not dereference object [Root exception is java.lang.NullPointerException]

      Hovever, if I combine the two beans in the same jar, it works.

      Is there a requirement that beans with local interfaces be in
      the same jar as other beans that use them, or is this a bug?

      P.S. I'm using the code in section 5.3 of the JBoss workbook
      used with O'reilly's Enterprise Java Beans 3rd Ed.
