I have created a datasource in websphere using console and able to Test connection succesfully, however when i try to access through my application (from DAO) it throws following exception
before I was able to setup datasource locally using WSAD, but not able to do same on App server on Unix box.

[11/2/04 10:41:05:560 EST] 29ad5b4e Helpers W NMSV0605W: A Reference object looked up from the context "java:" with the name "comp/env/jdbc/SRSDataSource" was sent to the JNDI Naming Manager and an exception resulted. Reference data follows:
Reference Factory Class Name:
Reference Factory Class Location URLs: <null>
Reference Class Name: java.lang.Object
Type: ResRefJndiLookupInfo
Content: ResRefJndiLookupInfo: Look up Name="jdbc/SRSDataSource";JndiLookupInfo: jndiName="jdbc/SRSDB"; providerURL=""; initialContextFactory=""

Exception data follows:
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Context: srs-was-dev/nodes/srs-was-dev/servers/server1, name: jdbc/SRSDB: First component in name jdbc/SRSDB not found. Root exception is org.omg.CosNaming.NamingContextPackage.NotFound: IDL
at Source)

Here is my java code

Context ctx = new javax.naming.InitialContext();
ds = (javax.sql.DataSource) ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/SRSDataSource");
Here is my ds setting in console
Name : SRSDataSource
JNDI Name : jdbc/SRSDB

I also have references to the datasources from my EJBS defined in ejb-jar.xml and ibm-ejb-jar-bnd.xmi files - same setting and same code works great in WSAD.

any help ?
thank you
