Hi,

I am trying to set data source in session, but getting null pointer exception. I checked data source and it was not null.
(ds: weblogic.jdbc.common.internal.RmiDataSource@63247b)

Here is the code:

Context initcntx = null;
               Hashtable ht = new Hashtable();  
               ht.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory");
               ht.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "t3://localhost:7001");  
             
               try {
                     
                     initcntx = new InitialContext(ht);
           
                     javax.sql.DataSource ds = (DataSource)initcntx.lookup(dsName);
                        session.setAttribute("ds", ds); ---------------> error!

there is no session available at servlet initialisation.
Session is only available for a request

Hi,

Why do you need to put the datasource in the session? It is not necessary. You can call the DataSource at anywhere on your codes. It is not *expensive* and all the connections are handled effectively by WebLogic.

However, if you would like to put it in session, I will help you ;). Can you post your current codes? How do you initialise the session?

in case you have a request object in your scope you can set the object in the session as

request.getSession().setAttribute("ds", ds);

Thanks/SSP
