    Context Lookup error

    Mohamed Mostafa Newbie

      i will explain my project breifly


      I need to create a webservice which calls an EJB that execute a query on a sybase database

      this database is a datasource on glassfish server ( i am using Netbeans 7.1.1 )


      i have created Stateless session EJB which i needs it to connect to the database using JNDI


      here is a part of the class


      public class NewSessionBean implements NewSessionBeanLocal {
          @Resource(name = "ejb")
          private DataSource ejb;
          public String execute(String query) {
              String dbName = "java:comp/env/jdbc/ejb";
              try {
                  Context loContext = (Context) new InitialContext().lookup("java:comp/env");
                  ejb = (DataSource)loContext.lookup("jdbc/ejb");
                  Connection loConnection = ejb.getConnection();


      and the glassfish.xml found in the configuration files of the EJB project is




      when i run the code it always gives an error at that line


      Context loContext = (Context) new InitialContext().lookup("java:comp/env");


      i have tried many lookups like


      Context loContext = (Context) new InitialContext().lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/ejb");


      HINT: my JNDI name i want to use is: jdbc/ejb


      always giving me that error
