3.         <session>
4.                <ejb-name>Eshop</ejb-name>
5.                <home>com.solution.EshopHome</home>
6.                <remote>com.solution.Eshop</remote>
7.                <local-home>com.solution.EshopLocalHome</local-home>
8.                <local>com.solution.EshopLocal</local>
9.                <ejb-class>com.solution.EshopBean</ejb-class>
12.         </session>
13.        </enterprise-beans>

6. A heavy tool manufacturing company manages its business and production by using enterprise beans. A session bean named 'Status' is used to get the production status for the day. The following code gets the context:
