Contribution to the Code Barn

I have made some small improvements to the JUnit JNDI DataSource helper package:

How can I contribute it back to the CodeBarn ?

Updates include:
- Built using maven2
- Opens the properties file using classpath
- Works with environment naming context ( see below example )

// Obtain our environment naming context
Context initCtx = new InitialContext();
Context envCtx = (Context)initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env");

// Look up our data source
DataSource ds = (DataSource)envCtx.lookup("jdbc/EmployeeDB");

Sorry for my delay in getting back to you on this. I've been sick.

In looking just at the name of this, it appears to be something to help a person test JRun? There's a name I have not heard in a long time. Without me opening it up, can you tell me more about it? Do we have a web page about it somewhere?

The title is: "JUnit JNDI DataSource helper package"

The description is: can be used to Simulate JNDI lookups for Database Connections.

and can be found here:

It allows me to run tests against my code without deploying it to a servlet container. Perhaps there is something else that already does this, but I found this and made it work. It does exactly what I need it to do.

Maybe we should rename the zip file using CamelCase to

I agree. Here's the link:
