Can't connect to database.
Posted by: Greg Abel ()

I have an application using a servlet that I cannot get to connect to the database using a datasource. I am able to connect to the database using the following code:

Class.forName(DRIVER).newInstance();
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url + dbName, userName, password); config.setBillReviewConn(conn);

This works fine and I am able to connect to my localhost via the url jdbc:mysql://127.0.0.1:3306/

However, when I cahnge the code to use a datasource using the following code:

Context ctx = (Context) new InitialContext().lookup("java:comp/env");
String database = "jdbc/" + profile;
DataSource ds = (javax.sql.DataSource) ctx.lookup ("jdbc/mysql");
config.setBillReviewConn(ds.getConnection());

The ds.getConnection is producing the following stacktrace:

I've tried multiple things to correct the issue such as replacing localhost with 127.0.0.1, turning off my firewall, etc.

I guess I don't understand how I can connect using the first snippet of code.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
