I am trying to access tomcat database connection pools using hibernate. For some reason, I keep getting the following error:
Could someone provide examples of what persistence.xml, hibernate_config.properties, content.xml, web.xml should look like?

Also, I am using tomcat standalone(without JBoss) and I am using eclipse-ganymede

First, I notice this entry a few lines before the exception is thrown:

INFO: JNDI InitialContext properties:{}


This is a snapshot of the exception:
