I am trying to learn how to use datasources to get connections,
and I am successful in doing this for the MysqlDataSource in this way:



However, I want to try to retrieve the connection via a Context,
and am unsuccessful in creating the initial association, like this:



It renders the following error:



I do not think this is a path issue (since it works w/o using the context bind).
I do not know what I need to make it "bind" properly.
Can anyone help with this? Thank You.

The properties of the Context do not show an appropriate provider url for the hosting of the datasource. If you are avoiding an App server (for a blackbox demo, for example) create an RMI registry server, create the datasource (with its own URL), and bind the datasource to the context with the provider url of the RMI server:
