I don't know the answer to Pradeep's question. But if that is possible, can't we use the same approach in every place where we use JNDI?

In the document Ko Ko posted a link to, there's this code sample:
What struck me in the eye was that this code doesn't specify where the database server is or which database to connect to. Is there some kind of default-to-localhost mechanism in Oracle's JDBC DataSource implementation?
PS. They do have another sample where the server name, port number and database name are explicitly set:
