You did not get the point:
(1) I did not give the example, attached to this issue
(2) I'm facing same problems with NO(!!!) Annotations (neither @Local nor @Remote) tagging the business interface
(3) I cannot tag the business interface due to it is in a third party dependency (well, could do this with aspectj but...)
(4) I know, that Adam's example use an @LocalBean annotation which will not fit in my scenario (as described before) with the requirement to have a Remote SLSB implementing the business interface and thats why the error occurs
I don't like to discuss about other's view of the specification nor about the correctness of others example.
I've written, that this issue is still reproducible in gf 3.1.2 esp. if there is no Annotation attached to the SLSB implementation nor the business interface.
So i'm very fine with Jakub's answer (which also leads to reopen this issue until another jersey version is available for gf 3.1.2).
