    jndi.properties in jboss 3?

      I'm using jboss 3.0.4, and I'm trying to write a simple client for a simple entity EJB...

      But I'm getting this error:

      javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in
      environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an
      application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial

      From searching the forum I know that this is caused by not having jndi.properties in the classpath...

      But in the quickstart docs, it says:
      "When you use the JNDI API within the same VM that the JBoss server is
      running do not have to perform any special configuration to create a
      JNDI InitialContext. You simply create an InitialContext without any

      I'm using the same "java" command to launch jboss as I use to launch the
      client, so I'm pretty sure this is the case... Or is do they mean something else by "same VM"?
      If not, then I understand it should just run without the jndi.properties file in the classpath, right?
