    JNDI lookup() NamingException whilst logging in as customer

    Russ Loucks Newbie

      I installed the JBoss 3.2.5 distro on my system with the following attributes:

      * Linux RedHat (V9)
      * Java 1.4.2

      I ran into the compile issues noted in other threads (can't find javax.servlet.jar), fixed those and successfully built and deployed the Bank application.

      I installed the JBoss distro in /usr/java/... as root and had to open up the 'server/default' structure so that users (other than root) could write into the directory structure. This is needed to deploy the bank application. I start the service as root, as well.

      I specified 'TCP/IP' connections for the the HSQL database (in the hsqldb-ds.xml file) as specified in the Getting started guide. I verified the database was populated with data by starting the HSQL database manager tool and dumping a few of the tables. They look fine.

      I can start the application and bring up the main page (http://localhost:8080/bank/main). When I enter a customer ID/password as specified by the getting started guide, the page displays:

      Server Error
      Your request cannot be completed. The server got the following error:

      null

      The server.log also displayed a stacktrace. I found the offending class::method and augmented it to dump more information. This is what the server.log now displays:

      2004-09-10 11:02:18,049 ERROR [org.jboss.ejb.plugins.LogInterceptor] EJBException:
      javax.ejb.EJBException: ejbFindByCustomerId JNDI lookup exception: javax.naming.NamingException: Could not dereference object [Root exception is javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: DefaultDS not bound]
      at com.sun.ebank.ejb.account.AccountBean.ejbFindByCustomerId(Unknown Source)

      Hmmm. The 'DefaultDS' name doesn't seem to be bound to the database. So why would the application start but this logon operation fail?

      I see something else on the console when I start the JBoss server:
