I download this tutorial; http://java.sun.com/products/jndi/tutorial/index.html
try to run example Lookup.java as following;
(http://java.sun.com/products/jndi/tutorial/getStarted/examples/naming.html);
//file Lookup.java
import javax.naming.Context;
import javax.naming.InitialContext;
import javax.naming.NamingException;
import java.util.Hashtable;
class Lookup {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// Check that user has supplied name of file to lookup
if (args.length != 1) {
System.err.println("usage: java Lookup <filename>");
System.exit(-1);
}
String name = args[0];
// Identify service provider to use
Hashtable env = new Hashtable(11);
env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
"com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory");
try {
// Create the initial context
Context ctx = new InitialContext(env);
// Look up an object
Object obj = ctx.lookup(name);
// Print it out
System.out.println(name + " is bound to: " + obj);

// Close the context when we're done
ctx.close();
} catch (NamingException e) {
System.err.println("Problem looking up " + name + ": " + e);
}
}
}

I put fscontext.jar , providerutil.jar and jndi.jar under JAVA_HOME\jer\lib\ext
I get the following exception;
Problem looking up c:\Java: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Cannot instantiate class: com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory [Root exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory]
why can not instantiate class:
com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory, fscontext.jar is there.

Hi,
set your CLASSPATH to point to the file fscontext.jar, I think this should solve this problem, if you still have the same message check the jar file to see if the class can be found inside it.

Thanks Marcos.
It realy solves the problem. But I am wondering why JVM cannot see all those *.jar in JAVA_HOME\jer\lib\ext?
