javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environmen
t or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource f
ile: java.naming.factory.initial
at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(Unknown Source)

Hi

The exception that you get is probably because there are no
default properties for the JNDI Server you are using.Try modifying your
code like this. Also make sure you have j2ee.jar in your classpath.

Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
"com.sun.enterprise.naming.SerialInitContextFactory");
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL,
"localhost:1099");
Context initialContext = new InitialContext(env);

Thanks for the info.
Oddly enough today it works fine.

Thanks
