*If* the person who administers your Tomcat installation has set things 
up to allow it, and if you have a suitably up to date Tomcat version, 
you can put a "META-INF/context.xml" file in the WAR, containing the 
<Context> element that defines (among other things) your JNDI 
resources.  However, it's likely that your admin hasn't enabled this 
feature -- it's not on by default, for (justifiable) security reasons.

The bottom line is that the container owns JNDI resources, not the 
application, so the container has to be involved in creating new ones.
