Hi,

I have created a data source in web sphere console and now I am trying to get a database connection using this data source. I am getting exception while looking for the JNDI name of the data source.

Below are the code and exceptions

Code: -

DataSource ds = null;
Connection conn = null;
try{
Context context = new InitialContext();
//InitialContext context = new InitialContext();

ds = (DataSource)context.lookup("jdbc/XADataSource");
if (ds != null) {
conn = ds.getConnection();
System.out.println("Connected:");
}
}



Exception -



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(NamingManager.java:653)

at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(InitialContext.java:361)
at com.metlife.onlinepolicy.DBConnection.getConnection(DBConnection.java:30)
at com.metlife.onlinepolicy.DBConnection.main(DBConnection.java:47)



Code: -

Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
DataSource ds = null;
Connection conn = null;

try{

env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
"com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory");
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL,"iiop://localhost:2809");
Context context = new InitialContext(env);
ds = (DataSource)context.lookup("jdbc/XADataSource");

if (ds != null) {
conn = ds.getConnection();
System.out.println("Connected:");
}
}


Exception:-

Please help.

The way your righting is correct. Can you check with this

Step 1:- Check jdbc/XADataSource Test connectivity is fine in WAS Admin console
Step 2:- If Test Connectivity is pass then in your code change ds = (DataSource)context.lookup("jdbc/XADataSource"); as below
ds = (DataSource)context.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/XADataSource"); //the error shows environment needed

Plese let me know if it works

Hi Laxman,

I tried with
ds = (DataSource)context.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/XADataSource");

but still I am getting the same exception.

The code is working fine if I access the ds from a servlet. When I want to run the code from main method this is giving error.
