12.1 Overview of Oracle JVM Support for JNDI

Native Oracle JVM support for JNDI enables you to bind Oracle data source objects, which contain specific database connection information, by a name in a directory structure. You can use this name to retrieve the particular connection information to establish a connection within an application. You can also change the database connection properties and the actual source database without changing the application by changing only the associated object to which a specific name is resolved. This feature also provides a general purpose directory service for storing objects and object references.

The Oracle Java Directory Service (OJDS) package, oracle.aurora.jndi.ojds provides the APIs for implementing JNDI support.
