Thanks for the reply William.

But I cannot find anything wrong with context.xml or server.xml

My context.xml is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <Context docbase="MBIDataEntry.war" path="/MBIDataEntry" reloadable="true">
<ResourceLink global="jdbc/ahawarehouse" name="jdbc/ahawarehouse" scope="Shareable" type="javax.sql.DataSource" />
<ResourceLink global="jdbc/ahawarehouseOLTP" name="jdbc/ahawarehouseOLTP" scope="Shareable" type="javax.sql.DataSource" />
</Context>

The relevant portion on server.xml is

<Resource auth="Container" name="jdbc/ahawarehouseOLTP" type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>
<Resource auth="Container" name="jdbc/ahawarehouse" type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>

<ResourceParams name="jdbc/ahawarehouseOLTP">

<parameter>
<name>validationQuery</name>
<value>SELECT 1</value>
</parameter>
<parameter>
<name>url</name>
<value>jdbc:sqlserver://DWD01:1433;databaseName=AHAWarehouseOLTP;loginTimeout=60;sendStringParametersAsUnicode=false;</value>
