Using Java EE 5 @Resource injection in a servlet  RSS feed

Hi!

Recently I had been playing with Java EE 5 features. I would like to use the @Resource annotation to inject a java.sql.DataSource into a simple Servlet.
I'm using Glassfish V2 (with JavaDB) where I configured a connection pool and a JDBC resource with an appropriate JNDI name. (Successfully pinged in admin console.)

I have the following code in my servlet:


The web application (a JSP and this servlet) works fine but the datasource variable is always null. I checked my code against the references and it seems to be fine. Still it's not working.

Could you help me please? Do you have any ideas what did I miss? Is it requires some configuration in the web.xml or something?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

ps.: I hope I posted my question to the appropriate topic.
