I don't think they're looking for destinations. Instead, it's looking  
for a TransactionManager. This same problem was reported back in  
April. That user reported that the oracle adapter was looking for  
"java:comp/pm/TransactionManager". I wonder if they could be  
configured to look for "java:/TransactionManager".

I'm also wondering if throwing a RunTime exception is the appropriate  
behavior, in this situation. Why not a NamingException? I confess that  
the subtleties of JNDI are frequently lost on me...
