The jndi context is only available from j2ee components (or  
components that are called from j2ee components, on the same  
thread).  I think you want a gbean reference to the  
ManagedConnectionFactoryWrapper and to call $getResource on it.  For  
an example of how to do this, see  

If I've misunderstood what you are trying to do and you really just  
need to sequence the gbean startup order, you can use a gbean  
dependency, which looks like a reference but without the name attribute.
