Two pieces of information missing, JBoss version and what is the client performing the lookup.
Hi, thanks for replying.
JBoss versions I've tested with:
About the client: one is a Servlet, the other one a MDB.
The MDB is the main client, the servlet I've just create to continue testing at home, where I can't make use of the MDB, as I can't send a message to it (it's not a JMS message it works on).
I've meanwhile found http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=64201
So I guess the Servlet will not work at any time, which is something I could live with (at least I wouldn't know why I'd really *need* the Servlet being able to load the business object in a different ear). But not being able to get the RemoteObject from a different EAR when calling from the MDB is a show stopper for me, because it would require me to shut down MDB-service every time one of the many enterprise applications that should be accessed through the MDB deploys an update :-/
