Hello, everybody!
My config is as follows: win2k, tomcat 4.0.4, java 1.4, and the question is:
how do i configure a datasource so that i can call it from my .class file as follows:
InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
DataSource ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("myDataSource");
i have done some searches for the docs but they are not very clear and i am getting an error :
the datasource myDataSource is not configured within this Context, which i suppose references the server.xml file...
anyway, could someone gimme step by step, since my head is not working no more
Thanks,
alex
