your application context needs to define what that name is referring to.
What is the application that is trying to lookup that name?

it is a  shopping cart application

i just have the jar file not the source code

I was told :

 You need to setup the jndi name in the workspace for jdbc/cmssd pointing to the cms database similar to jdbc/cms. This is in the ear you are attempting to load.
