Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

Initial Naming Context

The naming support in Sun Java System Web Server is based primarily on J2SE 1.3, with a few added enhancements.When an application component creates the initial context by using InitialContext(), Sun Java System Web Server returns an object that serves as a handle to the Web application’s naming environment. This object in turn provides sub-contexts for the java:comp/env namespace. Each Web application gets its own namespace java:comp/env name space is allotted to each Web application and objects bound in one Web application’s namespace do not collide with objects bound in other Web applications.
