    lookup remote DataSource fail with JBoss 5 GA

    John smith Newbie


      i'm working on j2ee application running on JBoss 5 GA and want
      to lookup a remote datasource I configured. The datasource is mapped to an
      Oracle 9.0.2 DB.

      I configured the datasource within


      when I try to lookup the datasource with a simple client, with something like this :
      Context ctx = new InitialContext();
      DataSource ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:jdbc/cless-ds");

      i have the following exception :

      javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: jdbc not bound
      at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(NamingServer.java:771)
      at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getBinding(NamingServer.java:779)
      at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.getObject(NamingServer.java:785)
      at org.jnp.server.NamingServer.lookup(NamingServer.java:396)
      at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:713)
      at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:673)

      I Would be very glad for any hint.

      Thank's a lot.

          i have found the solution:

          The one change that is necessary for the client to be able to lookup the DataSource from JNDI is to specify use-java-context=false as shown here:


          This results in the DataSource being bound under the JNDI name "GenericDS" instead of the default of "java:/GenericDS" which restricts the lookup to the same VM as the jboss server.

          Best regard's.
