#StackBounty: #java #jboss #jndi #tomcat8 Name [services] is not bound in this Context. Unable to find [services]

Bounty: 50

I was trying to migrate a war deployed in jboss to tomcat 8. I am facing the below exception while loading my application context xml. This was working in jboss. (Had Same issue with dataSource, but it got fixed when I configured <GlobalNamingResources/> settings in context.xml.)

Application context has

..
<jee:jndi-lookup id="txnService" jndi-name="services/TxnService"
        lazy-init="true" />

<jee:jndi-lookup id="mailService" jndi-name="services/MailService"
        lazy-init="true" expected-type="com.tone.mailservice.MailService" />
..

And error:

Caused by: javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name [services/MailService] is not bound in this Context. Unable to find [services].

and

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'txnService': Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name [services/TxnService] is not bound in this Context. Unable to find [services].      

I can see the TxnService class has the following code.

public abstract interface TxnService
{
  public static final String JNDI_NAME = "services/TxnService";
  ..
}

This class is inside a jar and i have that jar inside the lib folder.
I have tried giving java:/comp/env/services/TxnService and java:/comp/env/services/MailService instead. But still same issue.

Full trace:
