TomEE does not use any weblogic related configuration file like 
weblogic-ejb-jar.xml. If you want to use EJB Bean Remote access, then you have 
to configure TomEE accordingly. In below, I assume that you use the latest 
TomEE 7.0.1 release from here, http://tomee.apache.org/downloads.html

Steps to use EJB Beans accessible from Remote Clients:

Open conf/system.properties of TomEE and set  tomee.remote.support = true
You have to configure tomee.serialization.class.blacklist and 
tomee.serialization.class.whitelist properties both in conf/system.properties 
and also in your client accessing your EJBs remotely.
For example if you have a test.IHelloWorld remote interface then add white list 
and black list as follows:
tomee.serialization.class.blacklist = -
 (We added test. as package which contains your EJB beans. Others are necessary 
as default.)
See this page for more information, http://tomee.apache.org/ejbd-transport.html
Add javaee-api and openejb-client jars to your client class path. These 
libraries are necessary to access your EJBs remotely.
Now use the Remote initial context factory to get initial context and lookup 
Remote Beans. Here is an example:
        Properties p = new Properties();
        p.put("java.naming.provider.url", "http://localhost:8080/tomee/ejb";);
        System.setProperty("tomee.serialization.class.blacklist", "-");
        InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(p);
        IHelloWorld instance = (IHelloWorld) 
        System.out.println(instance.helloWorld() );
public interface IHelloworld{

public HelloWorld implements IHelloWorld{

I hope this helps.
