RMI error trying to run sample LiveCycle code on JBoss



I have Adobe LiveCycle ES4 Server running on JBoss on a Windows 7 machine. On another Windows machine within the same network, I set up a client also running on JBoss, but probably a newer version (7.1.1). Using sample code provided by Adobe, I am trying to test my connection over RMI, but am running into errors. Here is the stack trace:

Here is my code:

protected void applyUsageRights() {

    try {

        //Set connection properties required to invoke LiveCycle                                

        Properties connectionProps = new Properties();

        connectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_DEFAULT_EJB_ENDPOINT, "jnp://");


        connectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_SERVER_TYPE, "JBoss");

        connectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_CREDENTIAL_USERNAME, MY_USER);

        connectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_CREDENTIAL_PASSWORD, MY_PASSWORD);

        //Create a ServiceClientFactory object

        ServiceClientFactory myFactory = ServiceClientFactory.createInstance(connectionProps);

        //Create a ReaderExtensionsServiceClient object

        ReaderExtensionsServiceClient reClient = new ReaderExtensionsServiceClient(myFactory); 

        //Retrieve the PDF document to which to apply usage rights

        FileInputStream fileInputStream = new FileInputStream("C:\\sample.pdf"); 

        Document inputPDF = new Document(fileInputStream);

        //Create a UsageRight object and specify specific usage rights

        UsageRights useRight = new UsageRights(); 





        //Create a ReaderExtensionsOptions object

        ReaderExtensionsOptionSpec reOptions = new ReaderExtensionsOptionSpec(); 

        //Set the usage rights 


        reOptions.setMessage("This is a Rights-Enabled PDF Document");

        //Apply usage rights to a PDF document

        Document rightsEnabledPDF = reClient.applyUsageRights(





        //Create a new PDF file that represents the rights-enabled PDF document

        File resultFile = new File("C:\\Adobe\\LoanUsageRights.pdf"); 


      }catch (Exception e) {




Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I know my client computer can access the LiveCycle server because I'm able to access a service I created in Workbench using REST (by just cutting and pasting the URL Workbench provides into my client computer's browser). Is it because I'm using the wrong EJB Port? 1099 is the default according to the sample code but I'm not sure how to check if it's right and don't know much about JNDI. Does it have something to do with security settings?
