JNDI Lookup Of JDBC Connector from a Servlet

Dear all:

I have created a Oracle JDBC Connector (using J2EE Visual

admin). Its Application name is "sap.com/JDBCConnector_xi.xml" and its name is

"xi"

In my servlet I have the following code

"

ic = new InitialContext() ;

DataSource ds = (DataSource) ic.lookup

("jdbc/ourLookup");

"

During deployment (J2EE Components and Assembler

tab) I have entered the following:

Resource Name = jdbc/ourLookup

Resource Type = javax.sql.DataSource

Authorization Type = Application

Resource Sharing = Shareable

In the deployer tab (after connecting to the J2EE

Engine) in the Environment tab/Resource References I

given the following:

Resource Name = jdbc/ourLookup

Resource Type = javax.sql.DataSource

Authorization Type = Application

Resource Sharing = Shareable

Resource Link = xi

After clicking on "Make All" I have found that

web.xml and web-j2ee-engine.xml are created

and they have the following entries in them:

web.xml

-


<resource-ref>

<res-ref-name>alias1</res-ref-name>

<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>

<res-auth>Container</res-auth>

<res-sharing-scope>Shareable</res-sharing-scope>

</resource-ref>

web-j2ee-engine.xml

-


<resource-ref>

<res-ref-name>alias1</res-ref-name>

<res-link>xi</res-link>

</resource-ref>

But when the application runs I get a Persistent error

that NameNotFound Exception.

I would request any help from you. My email id is

caesar.dutta@in.pwc.com or caesardutta@yahoo.com

Thanks very much in advance.

Regards,

Caesar

    Hi Ceasar,

    as you have declared a resource reference to the DataSource and you are looking it up from a servlet, you have to perform the lookup relative to the java:comp/env context. That is, you should use

    DataSource ds = (DataSource) ic.lookup

    ("java:comp/env/jdbc/ourLookup");

    See also an example of looking up a DataSource for the default DataSource on the J2EE Engine: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/7d/26e96f1d754408bfd658b6614cb1b6/frameset.htm

    Hope that helps!
