JNDI is as such a standard API interface for java applications to access a naming/directory servies. The naming and directory service acts as a database (techincally they are only services to store/access the data) to store the data. Note that naming and directory service doesn't support transaction,so if you store something, it assumed to be there even if the transaction transaction is rolled back.
