I want to access JNDI DataSource created in WebSphere through a java program/client. This java file does not exist in the same classloader and sits outside the class loader(classloader - where webshpere running). How do I access the DataSource in WebSphere? Help is really appreciated.

First of all, if you're going to use WebSphere, I'd strongly suggest taking a look at IBM Redbooks | WebSphere -- there's a lot of useful handbooks teaching to use the WebSphere tools.
As to your question about accessing the DataSource from a standalone client, the difference from the regular situation (servlet accessing a DataSource within the same server instance) is in how you obtain an InitialContext for the JNDI tree.
Here's how you need to do it in a standalone client:

Hi Lasse,
Thanks for your immediate response. What security credentials I need to pass to the hash table. I am accessing Data Source through pure stand alone java client not a servlet.
Help is really appreciated and thanks for sparing your time.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
