Subject Re: JNDI, resource and LDAP Trouble

You need to create the resource in your server.xml and then create a
resource reference in the web app's context.xml.  Sorry I don't have an
example in front of me but the basics are:
1.) the resource element in the server.xml creates the resource
2.) the web.xml references the resource by an application specific name
3.) the context.xml links the application specific name to the name as
defined in server.xml
