Simple Client(standalone) trying to access a Remote EJB on weblogic

I have a remote client on the machine say       
iiop://some.thing.company.com:1004

and say the JNDI name is  SomeHome.JNDI_NAME


How do I access this EJB ..I am getting a NamingException with this
*************************

Context initialContext = new InitialContext();
Object ref = initialContext.lookup("SomeHome.JNDI_NAME");
                        
SomeHome = (SomeHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,SomeHome.class)

Have you set up the initial context environment properties?

Hashtable env = new Hashtable () ;
env.put ( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "class name of your  app server's initial context factory" ) ;
env.put ( Context.PROVIDER_URL, "iiop://some.thing.company.com:1004" ) ;
Context initialContext = new InitialContext ( env ) ;

Thanks for your time.
>>>env.put ( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "class name of your  app server's initial context factory" ) ;

by the above you mean the remote weblogic factory right ?

No this is a local factory - the class which will serve on this JVM as the factory for the initial context.

No.

Yes you can.

As I am hitting Weblogic I am using
env.put ( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory" )

I am getting this error, when I do this ..

Cannot instantiate class: weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory

Do I need to have a weblogic jar on my client ?
If so where do I get that ?

No. Are you using the standard Sun JVM for your stand alonge application?

Every JVM needs an initial context factory - the "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory" will be present on the weblogic app-server (e.g., if a servlet deployed on it wants to connect to the EJB, it can use it), but not on a stand alone client. I guess if you are using Sun's JVM, you need to use the Sun initial context factory. It might be the default, so you can try without that and just specify the URL
