    using remote jar files with interfaces

    Jos van den Oever Newbie

      Hello all,

      I'm trying to get JBoss to use EJBs on other servers. I want to use a generic method to call all EJBs without deploying all EJB interfaces on the client. The interfaces should be loaded dynamically.
      The jar files can be loaded within a class running in JBoss's Tomcat and I can obtain an instance of the Class object belonging to the EJBHome interface.

      But how can I tell the InitialContext to use my custom ClassLoader for obtaining the interfaces. When I call

      Hashtable props = new Hashtable();
      props.put(InitialContext.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://" + jnphost);
      InitialContext context = new InitialContext(props);
      home = context.lookup(jndiname);

      the JNP NamingContextFactory does not look in the custom jar files and I get a ClassNotFoundException.
      Is there a solution for this problem?

      Cheers, Jos
