resource ref needs to be setup

I have modified my Tomcat 4.0.2 server.xml and web.xml files to set up a jdbc dbc Datasource. When I go to start Tomcat I receive the message thet the resource-ref must be set up. I have checked the Tomcat doco and I get conflicting info on the tag I should use in the server.xml file. I have used the <Context> tag but on another page they say to use a <GlobalResourceNaming> tag. Do I need one or both ?
Any code examples would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance,

not to worry.
I have managed to discover that I had overlapped the web.xml and server.xml files when setting up my jdbc datasource.
Everything tested and working sweetly.
I agree. Here's the link:
