public class javaURLContextFactory extends Object implements ObjectFactory, InitialContextFactory
Context factory for the "java:" namespace.

Important note : This factory MUST be associated with the "java" URL prefix, which can be done by either :

  • Adding a java.naming.factory.url.pkgs=org.apache.catalina.util.naming property to the JNDI properties file
  • Setting an environment variable named Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES with its value including the org.apache.catalina.util.naming package name. More detail about this can be found in the JNDI documentation : {@link javax.naming.spi.NamingManager#getURLContext(java.lang.String, java.util.Hashtable)}.
