My apologies if my searching of the forums was inadequete and I missed this in a previous response.
First off I'm using Jboss 3.2.3 and mysql 4.1.0. I have put the Connector/J jar file in the lib directory of my server and I have create the mysql-ds.xml file and dropped it into the deploy directory.
I also have dropped a war file from a previous Tomcat installation into the deploy directory and I watch the app "attempt" to deploy in the server console.
When the application deploys I see this message in the console (before I can even try and test my db connection.)
My question, is there more I have to do then just dropping the jar and the 'ds' file into the proper directories in my server? I've tried to read the Jboss admin and Dev book (which I bought) but it's vaguer then I am able to use at this stage of my learning.
ANY help would be much appreciated.
Note the "no valid JNDI binding error". Oh and please take into account the application I am deploying is a WAR (no ejb's so no ejb-jar.xml) it will be converted into an EAR once I can get it working properly.
Here's the error I see.
