I am configuring my Spring app to use Tomcat (Spring tc server), I am getting this error when tc Server 6.0.20 starts up with my app. deployed.

Caused by: javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name jdbc is not bound in this Context

I have used the following server.xml with datasource configured.

<Resource auth="Container" driverClassName="oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver" maxActive="10" name="jdbc/MyDataSource" password="password" type="javax.sql.DataSource" url="....." username="yan"/>

This is my Spring config XML

<jee:jndi-lookup id="datasource" jndi-name="jdbc/MyDataSource" resource-ref="true"/>

I do not think I missed anything, but cannot seem to get database connection to work.
