What's your real purpose behind this (not specifying "java:comp/env")?

If it is just that you hate this string, you can use the "@Resource" annotation to inject the datasource in container-managed artifacts (Servlet, EJB, etc.).
    @Resource (name="jdbc/LiferayPool")
    private DataSource ds;

How do I connect to a datasource thru code without context "java:comp/env"

Context envContext  = (Context)initContext.lookup("java:comp/env");

I just want to connect to DB like this

DataSource ds = (DataSource)initContext.lookup("jdbc/LiferayPool");

Any such jndi name is going to be container specific.  The java:comp/ stuff is there specifically so you can use the same jndi name in every container, so you don't have to recompile your app for every container.

For information on the geronimo absolute jndi names, see http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/jndi.html

Basically what you should do is deploy your datasource, restart geronimo, and look in var/log/geronimo.log for the log message telling you what the jndi location is.

Is it possible, if so where do I specify java jndi context ("java:comp/env")
outside the code?

As far as I understand what you are asking for in this sentence, it is not possible.
