comp not bound exception

context.listBindings("java.comp") throws the following exception

when i invoked listXML() method in service JNDIView in jmx-console, it displayed the following, which proved the presence of java:comp.

then how listBindings threw that exception?

have a great day,

I think you wanted "java:comp", not "java.comp".

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

i mistyped it. i meant to say "java:comp" only. i configured my jboss in eclipse. i start my jboss from eclipse. then why is it not bound.

The java:comp/env namespace is per component. What this means is, this namespace and the objects bound in this namespace are accessible only to the component to which this java:comp/env namespace belongs to.

at javax.naming.InitialContext.listBindings(
at com.test.EntityTest.main(

Going by this exception stacktrace, you are trying to lookup the java:comp namespace from a standalone java client, which does not have java:comp namespace of its own
