URL to call an ejb

I have a ear file named family.ear. The application.xml is as below. After deploying on jboss if I type http://localhost:8080/family, I am getting as nothing is available there. I am not able to identify the mistake I am commiting. Its long time I have dealt with ejb's.  Could someone guide me.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

    <application>
        <display-name>Family</display-name>
        <module>
            <web>
            <web-uri>family.war</web-uri>
            <context-root>/family</context-root>
            </web>
        </module>

        <module>
            <ejb>family.jar</ejb>
        </module>

    </application>

I dont think you can call ejb from a URL.
You need to get the JNDI context first and then invoke the EJB method

you can however encapsulate the EJB service into a restful service, and this restful service
