Hi Friends,

I am getting the "Lookup Error Name comp/env/mail not found in context "java:"., Failed to lookup the configuration path" error in the servlet.

The lines of code is
try{
Context initCtx = new InitialContext();
mailHost = (String) initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env/mail/mail_02");

} catch (NamingException e) {
AtlasLogger.info(
"DMUMail: Failed to lookup the configuration path");
AtlasLogger.error("DMUMail: Lookup Error " + e.getMessage());
}

Please advise me.Thanks.

What container are you using?

It looks like you are trying to lookup a web application environment variable. Environment variables are set up in your web.xml file. Try adding something like this to your web.xml file:
