The issue is <local> must refer to interfaces that extend  
javax.ejb.EJBLocalObject, i.e. the old style EJB 2.x interfaces.  You  
just need to update your descriptor to use the <business-local>  
element instead as in:


That should fix the issue.  Alternatively, you can let the annotation  
do the work and leave EmployeeServiceLocal out of your ejb-jar.xml  

I'm surprised you didn't get a validation failure.  We aggressively  
check for all sorts of possible mistakes, such as using <business- 
local> where <local> should be used or using <local> where <local- 
home> should be used, etc.  You just happened to find one we didn't  
check for :)   Looks like a pretty important one too!  We will  
definitely add it for the next release.

Thank you very much for the positive feedback, we definitely  
appreciate it.
