Hi,

I'm using JBOSS 4.0, JDK 1.5 & mysql 5.
When I'm trying to access the DB from my JSP pages I have no problems.
But when I try to do it from an applet I get the following error:

javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial
at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.getURLOrDefaultInitCtx(Unknown Source)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(Unknown Source)
at com.imagine.em.QOD_GW.charts.BitRateChartApplet.init(BitRateChartApplet.java:64)
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)


I tried to add all the jars to my CLASSPATH but it didn't help.
Anybody has any idea?

Thanks a lot,
Efrat

An applet runs on the client, so it does not pick up any settings from the server like the classpath. According to your stack trace there, you need to specify " java.naming.factory.initial" as an applet parameter. If you are unfamiliar with how to work with applets, have a look at the Java Tutorial. It covers a lot of the issues you'll have with the applet api.

Yes, I did it.
I added a jndi.properties to my jar with the following lines:



And I got the exception:

javax.naming.CommunicationException: Receive timed out [Root exception is java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Receive timed out]

... 7 more


So I added a 3rd line:

Now I have another exception:
