How to instantiate an EJB class in a non-EJB class?

950731 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated

I am using Maven framework to build my project and EJB 3.0 is the EJB specification. I have an EJB interface A and its corresponding EJB class B that implements A. The body of class B is shown below:

+@TransactionAttribute(value = TransactionAttributeType.REQUIRES_NEW)+
+class B implements A{+

+@PersistenceContext(unitName = "Draco-PU", type = PersistenceContextType.TRANSACTION)+
EntityManager entityManager;

+//called post construct+
+public init(){+

+//body of init method+


I have a non-EJB class in a different package under the same project. I want to instantiate class B in this class, so that the init() method and other annotations are automatically referred and I can give explicit call to other methods in the EJB class. How can I look up the EJB class for accessing the methods? Please help.
