I have binded one object in Jdni.But now two clients want to access that resource at a time using lookup() method.Now both clients will work on the same object or on different objects.

They would be working with the same object because only one copy was bound to the JNDI.

Of course, the object bound to JNDI might be a factory, so they might be working with a factory, that actually produces multiple instances of the thing the client really wants.

Like, a DataSource is bound to JNDI. People access a DataSource, but not for a DataSource, but for a database connection. So, even if everyone gets the same datasource, the clients will be getting a different connection from the pool.

Okay, the connection pool presents all sorts of sharing issues as well. But you know what I mean.
