Subject getting Naming exception with struts...please help...
Date Wed, 28 Jul 2004 15:03:20 GMT
I am using struts in my web application, My application is trying to create
a new user in the database when the user clicks on the submit button giving
teh user information.

And i am getting connection not found error.  below is the error stack

WARNING: Unhandled Exception thrown: class java.lang.NullPointerException
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name jdbc is not bound in this Context
        at org.apache.naming.NamingContext.lookup(
        at org.apache.naming.NamingContext.lookup(
        at com.ecommerce.DAO.DAOFactory.getConnection(Unknown Source)
        at com.ecommerce.DAO.UserDAO.<init>(Unknown Source)
        at com.ecommerce.action.BillingInfoAction.execute(Unknown Source)
First i tried to connect to mysql db without using struts and it works.  I
am using Tomcat 4.1.03 server.  Edited server.xml and web.xml for the
datasource entry to retrieve connection object.  But now i am using struts
and BillingInfoAction classe's execute method calls my DAOFactory class to
retrieve connection  .

Why is it different if i use Struts, why can't the context be bound to my
database? please help...
