Database Custom Field plugin DB configuration Context.xml creation

Installed the plugin on jira 5.1.8

in my Jira Home directory the \conf directory wasn't existing (normal?)

I created it and then created a file context.xml in it.

File content :

<Resource name="testDB"
      auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"

I'm getting :

[commons.jira.kconfig.PluginConfiguration] Database JNDI >>testDB<< is not defined

in my catalina logs.

So I understand the conf/context.xml should go somewhere else I did not understood.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OK the file was somewhere else on my installation. I don't know why. Anyway File found, edited, restarted jira. All works. Thanks

The conf directory should already exist in your Jira installation folder, next to atlassian-jira and bin folders.

I too face the same problem. i created a conf folder and added conext.xml and created a lib folder and added ojdbc14.jar. Still i am getting the error [commons.jira.kconfig.PluginConfiguration] Database JNDI >>testDB<< is not defined

please any one help me to sort it out, urgent!!!

You do not have to create the conf folder and the context.xml file. They should already be present in the Jira installation directory, as I mentioned above.
