Connecting a Netbeans EE application to a glassfish server.

Ok I pulled my hair out doing this – it seemed whatever I did I got a Null Pointer Exception when I ran the client, so here’s the solution. Sorry Sun, but I couldn’t get it working using the menu in the IDE that created this code:-

IntelligenceRemote intelligenceremote;

In this case my remote class is called IntelligenceRemote and I have a method called TransferJob(Jobnumber,Depot); 

         InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();        
         IntelligenceRemote  test = (IntelligenceRemote ) ctx.lookup(IntelligenceRemote.class.getName());        
        System.out.println(test.TransferJob("12303", "OHH"));
        } catch (Exception e) {
        System.out.println("Could not transfer job");

Ofcourse Netbeans being wonderful it will already give you the option to add the import.

import javax.naming.InitialContext;
