using DataSource in RAD 7.5

Hello,
I used to work with RAD 7 and WAS 6.0 and call a DataSource from my servlet by using a reference I created earlier from RAD itselt.

Now I'm working on RAD 7.5 and WAS 7.0 and I tried to create a reference to the same DS, but there is no field for adding the DS jndi name. Did I missed something ? How should I connect to the DS with RAD 7.5 ?

Thanks !!

Are you attempting to add it as a resource reference in the web.xml? I've seen this behavior in RAD 7.5 versus RSA 7.5. Make sure it is opening the the Deployment Descriptor Editor.

In RAD 7 I created a datasource reference through "Deployment Descriptor" :
1. Open DD.
2. click the "References"
3. click "Add" and create a DS Reference.
4. Then add the "JNDI Name" in the right field.

The problem is that in RAD 7.5 I don't have ch.4, means I don't have any field to place the "JNDI name" of the DataSource.
So how should the WEB application will know what the JNDI name is ? how should it access to the data source on the server ?

Thanks.
