    Problem with JDNI java:/DefaultDS

    John Gruber Newbie

      Hello all...

      JBoss 2.4.4

      I have changed the DefaultDS entries in jboss.jcml and the jaws mapping file to use MySQL. It all seems to be working find as I have deployed and used several CMP entity beans.

      The problem I have is getting a reference to the Datasource connection pool through JNDI.

      I can use the MBean JNDIView and see:

      java: Namespace
      +- DefaultDS (class:org.jboss.pool.jdbc.xa.XAPoolDataSource)

      So the MBean can see it and my CMP beans use it.
      However from within client code:

      Context ctx = new InitialContext(props);
      ctx = (Context)ctx.lookup("java:");

      is an empty context and therefore

      DataSource ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:/DefaultDS");

      does not work...

      Help... what am I doing wrong here?? I want to be able to use the DataSource from my session beans and other clients.
