    JNDI transaction outside of container

    Tim Newbie

      I cant seem to get the TransactionManager and UserTransaction when running junit tests from outside the server.

      I've tried many thing including:
      <jee:jndi-lookup id="transactionManager" jndi-name="java:TransactionManager">

      <!-- spring jta transaction manager -->


      Is it possible to get the TransactionManager and UserTransaction if you are not running from within the jvm of the container?
      Has anyone tried this before?

          Forget this issue. I got it working now.
          But I am getting:

          [junit] Caused by: org.springframework.transaction.TransactionSystemException: JTA TransactionManager is not available at JNDI location [java:TransactionManager]; nested exception is javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: TransactionManager not bound
          [junit] at org.springframework.transaction.jta.JtaTransactionManager.lookupTransactionManager(JtaTransactionManager.java:474)

          [junit] ... 48 more
          [junit] Caused by: javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: TransactionManager not bound

          Even though I can clearly see the TransactionManager bound in the JNDIView.

          I am running these tests thru JUnit to a JBoss server running locally.
          Is there something special I have to do if the tests are outside the JBoss container?
