Subject Re: How do I connect JNDI in Tomcat 4.0 to JNDI in JBoss?
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2001 10:02:16 GMT

    I think you are talking about different kind of contexts. I've entered
the online administration for the first time after reading your emails and
the only contexts I could find there were servlet ones. Another point is
that /admin doesn't seem exist in Tomcat 4.0 (use /manager instead) but only
in Tomcat 3.2.
  I'm not sure the <EJB-link> tag (or any member of its family) is
implemented by Tomcat. The servlet 2.2 spec only requires the implementation
of these tags to servlet containers that are part of a J2EE compliant
    One solution to the JNDI stuff could be using the JNDI taglib (from the
jakarta taglibs project). Another one could be writing a tag similar to
useBean but providing 1) an id, a remote type, a JNDI name and optionally
JNDI environment stuff or 2) an id, a home type, a remote type, a JNDI home
name, an array of parameters for some create method, and optionally JNDI
environment stuff. The second alternative would be useful when the bean
should be obtained from its home.
