I got it working by using an explicit lookup name in the @EJB annotation, like this:

The server cannot guess what the appname, module name and bean name would be for that target bean (which resides on a different server) to be. It's the user's application which has that idea. One way to reduce the tediouness is to use the ejb-jar.xml to set up the injection (ejb-jar xsd has the necessary details) such that you can then use something like this in the ejb-jar.xml:


and set the system property (typically by passing -D<system-property-name>=<system-property-value>) while launching the server. Note that the system property replacement in deployment descriptors is a JBoss application server specific features and may not be portable across different server vendors.
