public interface InitialContextFactory
The JNDI framework allows for different initial context implementations to be specified at runtime. The initial context is created using an initial context factory. An initial context factory must implement the InitialContextFactory interface, which provides a method for creating instances of initial context that implement the Context interface. In addition, the factory class must be public and must have a public constructor that accepts no arguments.
Context getInitialContext(Hashtable<?,?> environment) throws NamingException

environment- The possibly null environment specifying information to be used in the creation of the initial context.
NamingException- If cannot create an initial context.
