Use JNDI to connect to DB

I have a process set up to continuously run sql scripts to the database using the idea from the link below

http://www.theserverlabs.com/blog/2009/05/18/continuous-integration-with-oracle-plsql-utplsql-and-hudson/ 

How can I replace the JDBC connection with JNDI in the pom.xml

I am using the below implementation of maven to execute scripts to oracle database.
This is a sql-maven plugin that connects to the database using the configuration like below.

<build>
    <plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
        <artifactId>sql-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>1.5</version>
        <dependencies>
            <dependency>
            <groupId>com.oracle</groupId>
            <artifactId>ojdbc5</artifactId>
            <version>11.2.0.1.0</version>
<configuration>
          <driver>oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver</driver>
          <url>jdbc:oracle:thin:@server1:1234:sid</url>
        <username>testing</username>
          <password>testing</password>
          <delimiter>/</delimiter>
          <delimiterType>row</delimiterType>
          <keepFormat>true</keepFormat>
        </configuration>
            
            
      The username and password cannot be put in here when building to personal identification schemas.
      Hence a JNDI connection is being created to connect to the DB.
      How can I use the JNDI connection in the pom.xml ?

Reading the documentation for the sql-maven-plugin it appears that it just doesn't support retrieving a connection via JNDI. So either you could try to find a different plugin (I don't know of one), write one yourself or just use the current plugin as is.

The username and password cannot be put in here

That's fine, so what you can do is using "properties" to specify the username/password. Have a read of this section of maven documentation (http://maven.apache.org/pom.html#Properties). You specify placeholders for the username and password and then (depending on your choice) you can specify the values for those placeholders within the users settings.xml file, or have them pass them as system parameters or have them set as environment variables. The POM stays that same for everyone, but the values can be different per user.
