    • EJB Reference
    • Web Service Reference
    • EJB Resource Reference
    • EJB Resource Environment Reference
    • Message Destination Reference
    • Security Role
  3. Fill in the fields in the dialog box that opens and click OK. The new reference is added to the list.

    The contents of the dialog boxes are reference-specific. Please, refer to the relevant topics.
