  • Getting message "could not bind factory to jndi". what to do?


    I am well into the software project. I have to say that many aspects of the software work very well with spring framework, except for just one error message the is repeated twice. As much as I read the documentation, I don't know exactly what to write into my spring xml definition file to resolve it. Instead of guessing, I would rather ask the experts.

    I am using spring framework-3.0.3 (slightly older but working) in combination with hibernate-3.6.4 orm (again slightly older but working). I don't update these software in the middle of a development cycle.

    My problem has to do jndi. I don't use it in my project, but I get error messages from it. I know what jndi is but how to use it effectively in the context of spring xml definitions. Below is my error message and followed by listing for hibernate xml definition.
