  • Issues when looking up a EJB3 Bean using SimpleRemoteStatelessSessionProxyFactoryBean


    I have deployed a EJB3 Bean(No Remote Home interface) in WAS 6.1 (has EJB 3.1 Feature pack installed).

    Following are my bean details :

    Remote Interface:

    public interface MyRemoteInterface {

    public void sayHello();


    EJB Bean

    * Bean implementation class for Enterprise Bean: MyRemoteInterface
    public class MyBean
    extends AbstractBaseSessionBean implements MyRemoteInterface {

    protected void onEjbCreate() throws CreateException {

    public void sayHello(){

    System.out.println("Calling sayHello ");



    This EJB bean is associated with the JNDI(bound to remote JNDI space) name called "ejb/MyBean".

    In my standalone Junit testcase's applicationContext.xml file, I have the following bean defined to look up the above remote stateless bean,

    <bean name="myProxyEJBBean" class="org.springframework.ejb.access.SimpleRemote StatelessSessionProxyFactoryBean">
    <property name="jndiName" value="ejb/MyBean"/>
    <property name="businessInterface" value="MyRemoteInterface"/>
    <property name="jndiEnvironment">
    <prop key="java.naming.factory.initial"> e.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory</prop>
    <prop key="java.naming.provider.url">iiop://localhost:2812/</prop>

    Stubs for the same EJB classes are generated and set in my client application's(Junit) classpath.

    when i try to access "myProxyEJBBean" bean, i get the following exception:

    org.springframework.remoting.RemoteLookupFailureEx ception: EJB instance [IOR:00bdbdbd000000465726961642e7063746d732e6100000 0250000000400bd0003] is not a Remote Stateless Session Bean

    at org.springframework.aop.framework.ReflectiveMethod Invocation.proceed( :171)
    at org.springframework.aop.framework.JdkDynamicAopPro xy.invoke(

    But i am able to lookup the same remote EJB bean and invoke methods using InitialContext lookup,

    try {
    ctx = new InitialContext(properties);
    java.lang.Object object = ctx.lookup("MyBean");
    MyRemoteInterface remoteReference = (MyRemoteInterface)object;
    } catch (Exception e) {

    Am i missing anything while defining "SimpleRemoteStatelessSessionProxyFactoryBean" ? or is anyother way to lookup remote stateless session EJB bean in spring framework?.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    An alternative would be using JndiObjectFactoryBean. Though, the support for EJB3 access via SimpleRemoteStatelessSessionProxyFactoryBean (which has been developed for EJB 2.x) has just been added in a recent version of Spring.
    So if you are not using a recent version of Spring, an upgrade would help.

    Edit: It has been included in version 2.5.1

      That's thread 50000!

        Reported not working in 2.5.4:


        • #5
          Not working in 2.5.3 either (see my reply in same thread


          • #6
            I guess I found the problem and opened a Jira issue (

            As a workaround use <jee:jndi-lookup> which works without problem.



            • #7
              The problem is fixed in the current 2.5.5 nightly snapshot. It seems that the issue showed up in only some EJB3 containers.

                Issues when looking up in EJB3 bean

                Hi Andreas, I faced the same problem with Spring2.5.5 ! I used the latest Spring 2.5.5 nightly build. I have EJB3.0 hosted in JBoss4.2.2GA. What can be the issue?
                EJB instance [jboss.j2ee:ear=sample.ear,
                jar=Sample.jar,name=createTest,service=EJB3] is not a Remote Stateless Session Bean ?

                Thanks in advance ,


                • #9
                  Actually, I verified the fix with JBoss 4.2.2GA (with added EJB3 support, installed by JEMS 1.2.1CR4) using the Spring 2.5.5 snapshot from 2008-05-13.

                  Based on the code changes made the issue should be fixed. Maybe you could also try debugging into AbstractRemoteSlsbInvokerInterceptor class and see what happens.

                    Hey Andreas, managed to solve the problem using <jee-jndi lookup> tag instead. Upgraded to Spring 2.5.5 as well. Thanks !


                    • #11
                      I have the same problem, spring2.5.2, jee:remote-slsbs or SimpleRemoteStatelessSessionProxyFactoryBean => same result. I will try with Spring2.5.5. (I use glassfish)


                      • #12
                        Ok for me too by using the last spring version and jee:* tags
