Hi, I'm trying to read the JNDI contents of my JBoss AS 6 running on localhost.

I have a on the root of my JavaProject. The project has uses a user library where it points to the necessary JBoss jars.
This project has just the following class:

When I do run this as Java Application (under eclipse), I get the exception:
javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial

I've checked the Run configuration for this project. The classpath tab contains the project itself under UserEntries - that makes me think that the at the project's root should be resolved.

How do I get file config to work?

Thanks in advance!
