  Creating a Web Application with Ant and Tomcat 4
Subject:   Name jdbc is not bound in this Context
Date:   2003-01-26 14:40:00
From:   anonymous2
I am getting this error in my log file. I built the app from Ant with no problems. Do I need to reference the context.xml in the web.xml?

This is the full error:

2003-01-26 16:29:33 Couldn't create addressesDB sttribute: Couldn't open connection to Public database: Name jdbc is not bound in this Context

I also get this error that may be related.

    If you have not put your database's JDBC driver file in Tomcat's common/lib directory, as instructed, you get the message "Couldn't create addressesDB sttribute: Couldn't open connection to Public database: Cannot load JDBC driver class 'org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver'". So I don't think this is your problem, but please check it anyway.

    Otherwise, you can view your Tomcat configuration by pointing your browser at http://localhost:8080/admin and looking at AddressBook's Context and Data Source Panels [see figures 8 & 9]. Do these panels look correct?

    You do not need to reference the context.xml in the web.xml. The information in context.xml gets put in Tomcat's conf/server.xml file automatically by the Ant/Tomcat admin process. Check server.xml out with your favourite text editor. Does this look correct?

    Finally, what versions of OS, MySQL, JDBC driver, Tomcat and Ant are you using?
