Hello, i'm new!!!

I'm approacing for the first time with JBoss and EJB; currently i'm running JBOSS 6.0 final, EJB 3.0 ( i chose this when i created my project - i don't want to use EJB 3.1 for now ), Eclipse Helios. Everything should be configured, i hope.

That's what i have done till now:

Created a +CalculatorBean+ and his interface +CalculatorRemote+ under the package +mycalcBean+;
Created a +CalculatorClient+  under the package +mycalcClient+;

both in the same EJB project +MyProjectEJB3.0.+

The client is a Java simple main that looks up for my bean and use a couple of his methods and runs as a Java application.

I have to set environment properties in my client and pass +env+ to my context.lookup:

*+     Hashtable<String, String> env = new Hashtable<String, String>();+*
*+                     env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory");+*
*+                     env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "localhost:1099");+*
*+                     env.put(Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES, "org.jboss.naming.client");+*
+                     InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(*env*);+
+                     Object obj = ctx.lookup(CalculatorBean.class.getSimpleName() + "/remote"/*"CalculatorBean/remote"*/);+

or i get the NOINITIALCONTEXT error. 
Why i need to do this when a lot of tutorials don't? Moreover i would prefer to use @EJB to look for my bean.
I have read a lot of things that tell about the jndi.properties file. Well, that's my file under JBOSS_HOME\server\default\conf:


I also tryed to put this file in the path where i have my client and in the CLASSPATH of my JDK.

Nothing worked. Why my client can't read this default conf file?

One last question:
if i change position to my client, putting it into a different project ( for example: +MyProjectEJB3.0Client+ ) the compiler doesn't see the +import project.mycalcBean.*+ 
How to do that?

thank you for your understanding and help!!!
