In the JNDI lookup(), when should I use the prefix "java:comp/env"? It seems that I should do this if i'm finding a EJB or other resource from another EJB that resides in the same appserver, if not, I should use a full JNDI name. Is that the right way? If not, what should I do?

You can use the java:comp/env virtual context for accessing resources referenced in the deployment descriptors.

For example, if you define an ejb-ref element in your web.xml to reference a separately deployed EJB, you can access that EJB via java:comp/env. If you didn't define a reference, you have to use the real JNDI name, like my.package.structure.MyEJB.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong cos' it's been a while since I've done these things.
