Subject Re: JNDI object not shared among TC instances
Date Mon, 13 Dec 2004 23:46:36 GMT

 I beg your pardon, but I will have to ask you a very basic question, indeed

 Which FAQ do you mean? Tomcat's, JNDI's or Java's?

 I went off crazy looking for it and I couldn't find it. I thought I had
exhausted all other ways to understand this problem . . . and thanks for
sheding light into it.

 If it is impossible to do things the way I thought I could, I will have to
work around it somehow, problably keeping all data structuring the objects'
states in a backend database tables

 I still have a kind of conceptual/phylosophical question. How do you set up
a singleton that would be such for different JVMs instances,  from different
JVMs vendors, different boxes and networks, based on plain JNDI (I mean
without EJBs or DBMS replication)?

 Or, . . . am I day dreaming?

 I really thought this was what JNDI was all about and even EJBs naming was
based on JNDI.

Tomcat's JNDI implementation does not support sharing for that matter
even external connections.  (This is in the FAQ by the way).  If you
want to share an object among multiple Tomcat instances via JNDI, you
must use a JNDI provider that supports this.
