I hadn't seen that thread.  Thanks for the pointer to it.

I do get same message that the originator of that thread gets:

2006-12-12 14:20:31,590 [http-8080-Processor23] INFO   
PlexusContainer                - Loading on start [role]:  
2006-12-12 14:20:34,287 [http-8080-Processor23] ERROR 1- 
SNAPSHOT]                    - Exception sending context initialized  
event to listener instance of class  
org.jpox.exceptions.ConnectionFactoryNotFoundException: Connection  
Factory "java:comp/env/jdbc/continuum" not found

          [ rest of stack trace deleted]

  but still haven't figured out the solution, even after adding the  
continuum.xml file to the tomcat conf directory.

I'm not a Tomcat expert, so I think there are several other things I  
need to do, but I can't tell what.

Here's what I did:

This morning I downloaded the bin of Tomcat-5.5.20, along with the  
admin tools, and extracted everything.  I added an account with  
"manager and admin" to the tomcat-users.xml, and then I started  
Tomcat with bin/

For continuum, I did this:

mvn clean install

Back in Tomcat I went to the manager, and went down to the Deploy  
section of the page and "uploaded" the war file from the continuum- 
webapp directory to Tomcat.

Under applications on that page, it now shows "/continuum-webapp-1.1- 

I click the start link on that line, and it gives me the message:

"FAIL - Application at context path /continuum-webapp-1.1-SNAPSHOT  
could not be started".

and got the same error message in catalina.out as listed above.

The continuum.xml file I have is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context path="/continuum-webapp-1.1-SNAPSHOT"

     <Resource name="jdbc/users" auth="Container"  
     <Resource name="jdbc/continuum" auth="Container"  

I'm missing something here, and I don't know what it is.
