Subject remote ejb lookup from within tomee
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2015 13:40:56 GMT
Using RemoteInitialContextFactory with URL=http://localhost:20/tomee/ejb from
within a .war to lookup an EJB annotated with @Local and @Remote succeeds if
the EJB is in the same .war. The outcome is the same whether I specify port
20, on which nothing listens on the localhost, or port 8080, on which tomcat
is listening. In the catalina.out log I see:

but in the tomcat access log there is no request for /tomee/ejb. Using the
same lookup from a different client JVM does show up in the access log as

This seems to indicate that the JNDI provider has done an optimization and
did a local lookup because a remote lookup is not needed. This is not an

My issue is that I get the same behaviour when I try to lookup the reference
from another .war in the same Tomee JVM. A local lookup is attempted and the
reference is not available because the initial context is testing empty.
Based on the fact that a remote lookup works from a different JVM it should
also work in this scenario. It is probably needed here because of the
different Class Loaders.

Is there a different context per webapp in Tomee?

Has anyone else had the same experience?

If my observations are correct, what options do I have to control this

The option (as per the documentation) of using an @EJB reference with the
link specified in the ejb-jar.xml also complains about the reference not
being bound.
