the service is implemented in Java as well.
I'm at home now and can not state the exact Exception, but
the text is like "/MyObject is not an Object provided by this service"

I made the connection to the bus in the static block of the class.
Then there are done some other things before aquiring the wellknown 
busname and exporting the object.
Maybe it is better to connect to the bus right before going to export 
the object ?

I will try tomorrow and let you hear about the results.
