How to catch Datasource exception during Spring initialization

I am interested in catching an exception during Spring initialization but I am not sure of how to do so. What I am looking for is A WAY to catch this exception should it occur again in the future (i.e.: how and where), so that I can inform the user of what have happened.

I am using Spring to initialize a datasource in the applicationContext.xml as below:
<bean id="dataSource" class="org.springframework.jndi.JndiObjectFactoryBean">
<property name="jndiName">

I am getting the following exception that I already resolved but want to capture it for future "setup" occurrance:

"The following exception was logged org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'dataSource' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml]: Initialization of bean failed; nested exception is javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Context: servers/server1, name: jdbc/ITLM: First component in name ITLM not found.
Root exception is org.omg.CosNaming.NamingContextPackage.NotFound: IDL"

I thought of using ServletContextListener but was not sure of how to capture an exception in the contextInitialized() method? I may need a different approach altogether?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You might profitably read this, which states that you should post your question to one forum, and one forum only. Application Frameworks seems a much better fit, so I'm closing the thread here.
I agree. Here's the link:
