I am learning EJB now.
One question:
I set up a datasource in the server(WebSphere, but I think it doesn't matter waht server I am using). I want to write a client program to locate that datasourse through "JNDI lookup". How am I going to do that. I think the key is to set up the propertis/enviroments.
Thanks in advance.

You also have to configure JDBC Connection factory, Define a <resource-ref> entry in the ejb-jar.xml deployment descriptor for a bean class to access a connection factory, and map the bean�s reference to �a resource manager connection factory for the configured data source� to an actual data source known to the application server
Getting a connection:
I agree. Here's the link:
