    local JNDI not working in embedded JBoss on Tomcat 5.5.

      When I try to do a lookup on my data source as follows:

      `Context initCtx = new InitialContext();
      Context envCtx = (Context) initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env");
      return (DataSource) envCtx.lookup(type.getName());`


      I get the following exception

      <pre>
      java.sql.SQLException: QueryResults: Unable to initialize naming context: Name java:comp is not boun
      d in this Context
           at com.onsitemanager.database.ThreadLocalConnection.getConnection(ThreadLocalConnection.java:130)
           at com.onsitemanager.database.ThreadLocalConnection.getDatabaseConnection(ThreadLocalConnection.java:87)
           at com.onsitemanager.database.QueryResults.allocateAndExecute(QueryResults.java:865)
           at com.onsitemanager.database.QueryResults.execute(QueryResults.java:897)
      </pre>




      I updated the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml as follows:


      `<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">

        <!-- Comment these entries out to disable JMX MBeans support used for the
             administration web application -->
        <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.mbeans.ServerLifecycleListener"/>
        <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.mbeans.GlobalResourcesLifecycleListener"/>
        <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.storeconfig.StoreConfigLifecycleListener"/>

        <!-- Listener required for embedded JBoss -->
        <Listener className="org.jboss.embedded.tomcat.EmbeddedJBossBootstrapListener"/>

      ...`


      And added to the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/context.xml:


      `<!-- The contents of this file will be loaded for each web application -->
      <Context>

          <!-- Default set of monitored resources -->
          <WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

          <!-- Uncomment this to disable session persistence across Tomcat restarts -->
          <!--
          <Manager pathname="" />
          -->

          <!-- Embedded JBoss -->
          <Listener className="org.jboss.embedded.tomcat.WebinfScanner" />

      </Context>`


      Am I missing something with this configuration? I'm trying to lookup my datasource which is configured properly in a -ds.xml file in my war's WEB-INF/classes directory. What do I need to do to TOMCAT configuration to get it to initialize the java:comp in the JBoss naming context. Note: If I use apache naming context it works fine. Please Help!!!
