 Filtering these out of the standard java proxy creation will easily reduce the exceptions

can actually be proxied?  Anyone have a pointer to where the blueprint proxy code is?

We can add class proxying support to the JNDI code. That should not be
a problem.

class per spec is final but that need to be in an EE jndi context.   Rather than making these
totally inaccessible through osgi jndi could we simply return the service rather than creating
a proxy?

No, that would violate the OSGi JNDI spec. The Aries JNDI
implementation actually supports two url schemes for looking up
services via jndi: the standard one - "osgi:service/" and non-standard
one - "aries:services/". Right now both work in exactly the same way.
But we could modify things a bit so that when "aries:services/" scheme
it could return a non-proxied service object (when proxying fails).
