Hi,

I need to get the DB connection object from the data source using tomcat 5.5 server.

1 Step: Added classess12.jar in E:\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib folder
2 Step:Added resource tag in the context.xml file

The context.xml file is as follows:

<Context>

<WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

<Manager pathname="" />
<Resource name="jdbc/myoracle" auth="Container"
type="javax.sql.DataSource" driverClassName="oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver"
url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@172.18.109.126:1521:CDMSDB"
username="cdmsdvlp" password="cdmsdvlp" maxActive="20" maxIdle="10"
maxWait="-1"/>

</Context>

3 Step: Added resource tag in web.xml , The resource tag is as follows:

<resource-ref>
<description>Oracle Datasource example</description>
<res-ref-name>jdbc/myoracle</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<res-auth>Container</res-auth>
</resource-ref>

4 Step: The following code used in the jsp :

Context initContext = new InitialContext();
Context envContext = (Context)initContext.lookup("java:/comp/env");
DataSource ds = (DataSource)envContext.lookup("jdbc/myoracle");
Connection con = ds.getConnection();

Please help me in solving the above mentioned problem.

The code and logs looks OK.
Some doubts:
What is the purpose of adding "class12.jar" into the E:\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib folder ?
Comment out the

Also refer this tomcat doc for the same: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/jndi-datasource-examples-howto.html
BTW, do you found any logs at the server startup?

Have you tired other options like, Tomcat docs and server startup logs. Some times you won't get the object because the related XML are not well formed.
