Hmm.  If it was created with the LocalInitialContextFactory as so..

  Properties properties = new Properties();

  InitialContext initialContext = new InitialContext(properties);

Then it should definitely work.  If it was done as so...

  InitialContext initialContext = new InitialContext();

Then I'm not as confident that it will work.  We have code in the  
integration to add the "openejb" subcontext into the webapp's jndi  
context, or so I thought.  I added code along these lines, but it's  
been while and I can't recall the details.  Maybe in this second case  
you have to lookup "java:openejb/TransactionManager".

Can you verify which technique you are using?
