Subject Problems configuring JNDI on tomcat (META-INF/context.xml)
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2008 01:45:45 GMT
Hello!

I was going through the installation instructions for continuum (
http://maven.apache.org/continuum/docs/1.1/installation/tomcat.html#Defining_JNDI_Resources)
and failing for both tomcat 6.x and 5.x.

The error message I was most often having was: "
javax.jdo.JDODataStoreException: Failed initialising database. Please check
that your database JDBC driver is accessible, and the database URL and
username/password are correct. Exception : Cannot create JDBC driver of
class '' for connect URL 'null'"

(As I understand it, the JNDI context not being configured correctly, the
url and driver strings had no values.)


The configuration that finally worked for me was technique #2 for tomcat
5.5.26:
"Creating a $CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost/continuum.xml containing
a <Context> element."



I am still not able to get this to work using technique #1: "Creating a
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/continuum/META-INF/context.xml containing a <Context>
element."  Since this is the most recommended technique, I wanted to get
this to work, especially since I can't find a conf/Catalina/localhost for
tomcat 6.

My context.xml file looks like this:

<Context path="/continuum-webapp-1.1"
         docBase="continuum-webapp-1.1">

  <Resource name="jdbc/users"
            auth="Container"
            type="javax.sql.DataSource"
            username="sa"
            password=""
            driverClassName="org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver"
            url="jdbc:derby:database/users;create=true" />

  <Resource name="jdbc/continuum"
            auth="Container"
            type="javax.sql.DataSource"
            username="sa"
            password=""
            driverClassName="org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver"
            url="jdbc:derby:database/continuum;create=true" />

  <Resource name="mail/Session"
            auth="Container"
            type="javax.mail.Session"
            mail.smtp.host="localhost"/>
</Context>


Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

Much thanks,
