I need to load my JNDI datasource before the startup servlet,becacuse in startupservlet I am having some code which loads some values from the database.

I am using the lookup code to get the JNDI name ,but it is not finding that name.

web.xml code added this code after taglibs definitions
<description>Primary database</description>

sun-web.xml code

java code:
initContext = new InitialContext();
source = (DataSource) initContext.lookup ("java:comp/env/jdbc/wbol");

can anyone help me out to resolve this issue.

You need to configure the JNDI Data Source in the Admin application for the server.

I Hope This Helps
