This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am stuck here with this problem. I created a Java project on Eclipse, the reason is I have to use my own framework that won't fit into a Tomcat project. But we are using Tomcat to run our application. Now I have to create datasource for Hibernate to use. If this is a tomcat project, I can set up DB2 datasource in Tomcat's server.xml. But it seems I cannot access this datasource set up in server.xml and web.xml using Hibernate code or JDBC code. I am wondering if there is a workaround for this?

You should be able to set up a non-JNDI data source. Check your driver/DB documentation on how to instantiate the data source class with the related data you need, eg database name, port number, etc. Once you have the data source, you can then get the Connection.
