JNDI lookup fails in load-on-startup servlet Jboss as7

abiya Newbie



I am able to perform JNDI lookup using the following code in any of my servlet as follows,


DataSource ds = null;
Context ctx = null;
try {

        String strDSName = "java:jboss/datasources/Test";
        ctx = new InitialContext();
        ds = (javax.sql.DataSource) ctx.lookup(strDSName);

} catch (Exception e) {


But the same code fails if it is invoked from init() method of load-on-startup servlet. My datasource is bound well before this.My console says,

13:26:06,881 INFO  [org.jboss.as.connector.subsystems.datasources] (MSC service thread 1-2) Bound data source [java:jboss/datasources/weblogic.jdbc.jts.demopool]


web.xml entry




servlet code


public class StartupServlet extends HttpServlet

    * init method
    public void init(ServletConfig a_config)
throws ServletException
        System.out.println("StartupServlet.init() called.");

     try {
   InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
   DataSource ds = (javax.sql.DataSource) ctx.lookup("java:jboss/datasources/weblogic.jdbc.jts.demopool");

   System.out.println("context info in StratupServlet init method...."+ds);
  } catch (NamingException e) {
   // TODO Auto-generated catch block

Please help me resolving this issue. I am stuck with this for a long time.
