If II annotate my session bean like that:

@Stateless ( name="UserFacadeBean", mappedName="UserFacadeRemote/remote")
public class UserFacadeBean implements UserFacadeLocal, UserFacadeRemote {
}

and deploy it in Webglogic 10, i get access to the remote interface with:

JNDI_NAME = "UserFacadeRemote/remote#" + UserFacadeRemote.class.getName();
userFacade = (UserFacadeRemote) new InitialContext().lookup(JNDI_NAME);

that works fine, but is there an alternative (beyond unsing ejb.jar.xml) to define
a jndi name with annotations, without the full qualified classname of the remote interface?

so I want to have something like:
 new InitialContext().lookup("mySimpleName");



thanks
manolis

In JBoss you can specify this in the vendor specific jboss.xml deployment descriptor or by using annotations in the bean class:
@RemoteBinding(jndiBinding="mySimpleName") for remote EJB interfaces or
@LocalBinding(jndiBinding="mySimpleName") for local EJB interfaces

I don't know if there is an annotations counterpart in WebLogic, but I'm sure the JNDI name for an EJB can be specified in the weblogic-ejb-jar.xml deployment descriptor as well. I guess you have to declare the bean in there and probably use the 'jndi-name' or 'local-jndi-name' element.

The mappedName element is not required to be supported by all implementations. Any use of this element is non-portable. The weblogic implementation happens to implement this using the fully qualified classname.

I don't think there is a standard way to do this...
