this question refers to STATELESS ejbs only.

i created a remote reference to my STATELESS ejb.
is this remote reference valid for as long as the weblogic server is up ?
or is there some kind of session timeout for a STATELESS ejb ?
if there is a session timeout , what exception is thrown when trying to invoke a remote method on a reference that has timed out ?
i need to catch this Exception and create a new remote reference.

no what happens is when a stateless bean is not accesses for a particular time(can be configured in DD)then it will go to passivate state .it will be in passivate state till it is activated by any client.
we can configure time & max no of bean in pool
& min no of bean in pool ...in DD
so u dont want to worry about that any time u can access a stateless session bean.

Nachiap, I think you are thinking of stateful session beans.  Stateless session beans are never passivated or activated.  They simply have 2 states, in pool or not existing.  You can set the pool size, but that's only for performance tuning, it doesn't affect the functionality of the bean.

Since a reference to a sl session bean is basically a reference to a remote stub object, you should be fine holding on to that reference even after weblogic goes down and comes back up..  whether you have or cluster or not.
