When I try the following lookup in my code:
Context initCtx = new InitialContext(); Context envCtx = (Context) initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env"); return (DataSource) envCtx.lookup("jdbc/mydb");
I get the following exception:
java.sql.SQLException: QueryResults: Unable to initialize naming context: Name java:comp is not bound in this Context at com.onsitemanager.database.ThreadLocalConnection.getConnection (ThreadLocalConnection.java:130) at ...
Quoting the config page:
Embedded JBoss components like connection pooling, EJB, JPA, and transactions make extensive use of JNDI to publish services. Embedded JBoss overrides Tomcat's JNDI implementation by layering itself on top of Tomcat's JNDI instantiation. There are a few > reasons for this:
- To avoid having to declare each and every one of these services within server.xml
- To allow seemeless integration of the java:comp namespace between web apps and EJBs.
- Tomcat's JNDI implementation has a few critical bugs in it that hamper some JBoss components ability to work
- We want to provide the option for you of remoting EJBs and other services that can > be remotely looked up
Anyone have any thoughts on how I can configure the JBoss naming service which according to the above quote is overriding Tomcat's JNDI implementation so that I can do a lookup on java:comp/env?
FYI - My environment Tomcat 5.5.9, Seam 2.0.2sp, Embedded JBoss (Beta 3),
Note: I do have a -ds.xml file for my database connection properly setup and accessible on the class path per the instructions.
Also note: I have posted this question in embedded Jboss forum and seam user forum.
