I configured my MySQL database to have the following:

<Context className="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext" cachingAllowed="true" charsetMapperClass="org.apache.catalina.util.CharsetMapper" cookies="true" crossContext="false" debug="0" docBase="c:\Tomcat\webapps\SOG" mapperClass="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContextMapper" path="/SOG" privileged="false" reloadable="true" swallowOutput="false" useNaming="false" wrapperClass="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapper">
          <Resource name="jdbc/SOGDB" auth="Container" scope="Shareable" type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>
          <ResourceParams name="jdbc/SOGDB">
            <parameter>
              <name>url</name>
              <value>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/sog</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>password</name>
              <value>webuser</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>maxActive</name>
              <value>40</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>maxWait</name>
              <value>5000</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>driverClassName</name>
              <value>org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>user</name>
              <value>soguser</value>
            </parameter>
            <parameter>
              <name>maxIdle</name>
              <value>40</value>
            </parameter>
          </ResourceParams>
        </Context>

Here is my web.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC
    "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
    "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd">
<web-app>
  <description>MySQL Test App</description>
  <resource-ref>
      <description>DB Connection</description>
      <res-ref-name>jdbc/SOGDB</res-ref-name>
      <res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
      <res-auth>Container</res-auth>
  </resource-ref>
</web-app>


Then I try it with the following code:
                  Context ctx = new InitialContext();
                  if(ctx == null ) throw new Exception("Boom - No Context");
                        DataSource ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/SOGDB");
                  Connection conn = ds.getConnection();
                  Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
                  ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from membership");
                  while (rs.next())
                  {
                        out.println(rs.getString(2));
                  }

I get an error:

Name java:comp not bound in this context.  I've successfully set up Microsoft SQL Server 2000 drivers in JNDI using the same methodology.

The JDBC driver for MySQL is in the %TOMCAT_HOME%\common\lib directory.  I ran the above code using a jsp page.  Therefore, wouldn't it find the appropriate drivers from the directory?  The stack trace that I get is in the browser itself and only points to the compiled jsp page catch area.  I can still print the stack trace if you think that will help but where would I put then in the jsp page?  Should I set up a try/catch there and print it in the catch?

Thanks

The MySQL driver lock like this (mm.mysql-2.0.7-bin.jar) right?

in your jsp do this to get the print stack trace:

<%

try
{
 //your code
}
catch(Exception err)
{
  err.printStackTrace();
}

%>

this will display the error on the tomcat console or tomcat log file
