    Default calling EJB method

    Hi All,
    I have never worked with EJBs so I am kind of stuck with one problem.

    I have to make use of one existing EJB project through my external standard java class. The existing EJB project makes use to some other packages which are also EJB projects and I am not allowed to change any functionality of the EJB project but to use them as it is.

    I am just initilizing the class object of the EJB project and calling its method. Within the EJB project there is a method which is calling another method of the EJB class.

    The problem is I dont see the EJB objects getting initilized first and then calling its method as it happens in a normal scenario, hence when that method gets called i get a null pointer execption.

    Let me give you some idea by posting some code snippet.

    Java Code:
    @WebService(targetNamespace = "")
    @SOAPBinding(style = SOAPBinding.Style.DOCUMENT, use = SOAPBinding.Use.LITERAL, parameterStyle = SOAPBinding.ParameterStyle.BARE)
    // standard EJB3 annotations
    // jboss propriatary annotations
    @WebContext(transportGuarantee = "NONE", secureWSDLAccess = false)
    public class AMSProfileServiceBean extends AbstractProfileBuilder implements AMSAgencyWSPortType
      private static Log log = LogFactory.getLog(AMSMappingServiceBean.class);
      @EJB(mappedName = "PotsdamProfileService/local")
      private PotsdamProfileService profileService;
      private Security              security;
      private OTAProfileBuilder     otaProfileBuilder;
      public OTATTProfileReadRS otaTTReadRQ(Holder<Security> wsseHeader, OTATTReadRQ request)
         security = wsseHeader.value;
         BigDecimal requestVersion = request.getVersion();
         OTATTProfileReadRS otaProfileReadRS = new OTATTProfileReadRS();
         PotsdamInstanceKey profileIntanceKey;
          profileIntanceKey = getKeyHandler(requestVersion).buildUserKey(wsseHeader);
          PotsdamInstance userInstance = loadProfileFromPotsdam(profileIntanceKey);
     private PotsdamInstance loadProfileFromPotsdam(PotsdamInstanceKey userCredentials) throws PotsdamException
    	  PotsdamInstance potsdamInstance = null;
        Holder<com.traveltainment.potsdam.common.messages.Security> wsseHeader = buildWsseHeader(security);
        ProfileResponse potsdamInstanceRS = profileService.loadProfile(wsseHeader, userCredentials);
    I get an error message before the sequence reaches loadProfile(..), which in my sense is due to the fact that 'profileService' never was initilized in the EJB project.

    profileService is object of another EJB project, which looks somethign like this:

    Java Code:
    @LocalBinding(jndiBinding = "PotsdamProfileService/local")
    // jboss 4.2
    @org.jboss.annotation.ejb.LocalBinding(jndiBinding = "PotsdamProfileService/local")
    public class PotsdamProfileServiceBean implements PotsdamProfileService {
    	private static Log log = LogFactory.getLog(PotsdamProfileServiceBean.class);
    	private CacheProfileService cacheProfileService;
    	@EJB(mappedName = "/PersistenceUnitsManagerBean/local")
    	private PersistenceUnitsManager persistenceUnitsManager;
    	private PotsdamService potsdamService;
    	public ProfileResponse loadProfile(Holder<Security> wsseHeader,
    			PotsdamInstanceKey cacheInstanceKey) {
    		 log.debug("inside  loadProfile"); 

    Now I am calling the main EJB like this:

    Java Code:
    public OTATTProfileReadRS PotsdamotaTTReadRQ()
    	  AMSProfileServiceBean a = new AMSProfileServiceBean();
    	  Holder<Security> wsseHeader = new Holder<Security>();
    	  OTATTProfileReadRS response = a.otaTTReadRQ(wsseHeader, request);
    	  return response;

    So my confusion is how can I make use of profileService.loadProfile(wsseHeader, userCredentials); ??

    I tried to initilize:
    Java Code:
    PotsdamProfileServiceBean profileService = new PotsdamProfileServiceBean();
    but I get jndi binding and lots of other exception.

    Please help.
