From what I remember of using Visibroker and the VBJ script, it sets up some system properties used by the InitialContext factory which probably reference Visibroker/Borland specific factory classes/urls.
See if it is setting the java.naming.provider.url property as it looks like this is what your app is falling over on.
Hope this is of some help
I agree. Here's the link:
