I need to load my JNDI datasource before the startup servlet,becacuse in startupservlet I am having some code which loads some values from the database.

I am using the lookup code to get the JNDI name ,but it is not finding that name.


web.xml code added this code after taglibs definitions
<resource-ref>
<description>Primary database</description>
<res-ref-name>jdbc/wbol</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<res-auth>Container</res-auth>
</resource-ref>

sun-web.xml code
<resource-ref>
<res-ref-name>jdbc/wbol</res-ref-name>
<jndi-name>jdbc/wbol</jndi-name>
</resource-ref>

java code:
initContext = new InitialContext();
source = (DataSource) initContext.lookup ("java:comp/env/jdbc/wbol");

can anyone help me out to resolve this issue.

You need to configure the JNDI Data Source in the Admin application for the server.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
