Subject RE: jndi.properties and classpath
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2000 14:24:11 GMT
Hi Simon, 

It is a classpath problem as you guessed as I had (sometimes still have!) 
the same error. 
You say you have all your jar file WEB_APPS/lib, I've found the 
Tomcat classloader to be particularly unreliable, (I'm using 
Tomcat 3.1.1 under Apache 1.3.12 for Win NT sp4). 
However I managed to work around this by putting jars either on 
the global classpath or setting the classpath specially in tomcat.bat, 
(actually once I found I had to extract it to Tomcats' classes
directory!)
I know this is not ideal but it works. 

Good luck!

Chris.

Subject: jndi.properties and classpath


Hi,

I know this seems to be another classpath error, but I really tried
almost everthing.

I am running tomcat3.1
my tomcat/lib contains
ant.jar
jasper.jar
jaxp.jar
parser.jar
servlet.jar
webserver.jar
xml.jar

I have an app in the webapp folder and all classes in
    WEB-INF/classes
which only contains the file
    jndi.properties

and all jars in
    WEB-INF/lib/
ejb.jar, ...

But I always get the following exception for any lookup of ejbs via jndi

-----------------
Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an
applet parameter, or in an application resource file:
java.naming.factory.initial
----------------

if I change the external classpath of tomcat and add a location which
only contains the file jndi.properties everything is fine. BUT that is
not what I want to do!

Does anybody know a solution???

so long!
    simon
