The javax.naming.InitialContext class implements the Context interface and serves as our entry point to a naming system. To use JNDI to access objects in a naming system, you must first create an InitialContextobject. The InitialContext constructor takes a set of properties, in the form of a java.util.Hashtable or one of its subclasses, such as a Properties object. Here is how we created an InitialContext in the Lookup example:

Properties props = new Properties();
props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
"com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory");
props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "file:///");

// Create the initial context from the properties we just created
Context initialContext = new InitialContext(props);


Regards,

Ujjwal Soni
