I have a datasource with the JNDI name of DS. In my code I use "java:comp/env/jdbc/DS" as the lookup string. I get an error stating that comp/env/jdbc was found but not DS. I have also tried prepending the JNDI name with com/env/jdbc/. It then shows up in the JNDI tree under those directories but when I run the web app I get the same error above indicating that the com/env/jdbc directory I have created is not the real one. Any ideas?
You can use the following code to solve your problem: public static DataSource objDataSource= ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource objDataSource = (DataSource) ctx.lookup ("DataSourceName"); Regards, Milind
When you set up the connection pool and data source, did you Target it to the server? Check the Targets tab in the console for these things to make sure. If its not "targeted", then it is just configured but not actually running anywhere.
hi try this on your config file <JDBCDataSource JNDIName="myDataSource" Name="myDataSource" PoolName="myDataSource" Targets="myserver"/> This is for the pool cos the datasource would refer to a jdbc connectoin pool <JDBCConnectionPool CapacityIncrement="2" DriverName="weblogic.jdbc.informix4.Driver" InitialCapacity="5" MaxCapacity="25" Name="myDataSource" Properties="user=;db=;port=;password=;server=" Targets="myserver" URL="jdbc:weblogic:informix4 ool@server ort"/> regards riaz
