sir,

I am just a biginner in weblogic and I am facing a problem here and I think you will provide a nice solution to me .
Environment : J2EE/weblogic 5.1/ejb1.1/servlets/win'2000

I have successfuly deployed a stateless session bean named as "Game" and the jndi name used is "gum" at Weblogic 5.1.
Elements inside the "Game.jar" are :
remote interface-> Game.class
home interface  -> GameHome.class
bean class      -> GameBean.class
xml DD          -> META-INF/ejb-jar.xml

I have maintained the dir. structure as follows :  WEB-INF/lib /Game.jar
WEB-INF/classes/toy/*.class
WEB-INF/classes/toy/META-INF/ejb-jar.xml
and using a client servlet class "GameServ.class"
WEB-INF/classes/toy/GameServ.class

Now till I think everything is all right...
Now i started the weblogic...then called the index page
and from the index page I am calling the bean using the mentioned servlet client "GameServ.class" and during calling process i am getting a exception "java.lang.ClassCastException" at the line mentioned below inside ClentServ.class..>
line of error-->"GameHome sh=(GameHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,GameHome.class);"

I tried my best but i could not get out of this problem and for more clearity i am writing the java files inside a package "toy" used here..as below....>>

*******************  files used *****************

***** remote interface *******

package toy;

}

  public void ejbPassivate() { System.out.println("<.....passivate....>"); }
  public void setSessionContext(SessionContext ctx) {    System.out.println("<....sessioncontext....>");    }
  public void ejbCreate () throws CreateException {  System.out.println("<.....create....>");    }
 
  public String getName()
  {
     System.out.println("<.....chk 1 .....>");
       String name="GAME";
      
      return name;
 }

 public int getSum(int x1,int x2)
 {
  int x;
  x=x1+x2;
  System.out.println("<.....chk 5 ...x..> "+x);
  return x;
}

}

inside the "toy.GameServ.java" i am getting    >> ClassCastEXCEPTION<< at line (**) as below

   " GameHome sh=(GameHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,GameHome.class); "

I hope i have described my problem very well and i request you to give me solution so that my client application may call the bean.

using reflection try to get class name , so that u will come to know which class ur getting.
code is
Class cls = ref.getClass();
S.O.P("class name"+cls.getName());

uu need to verify the class path and add home&remote classes in client jar file.
