Class NoInitialContextException

  extended by java.lang.Throwable
      extended by java.lang.Exception
          extended by javax.naming.NamingException
              extended by javax.naming.NoInitialContextException
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class NoInitialContextException
extends NamingException

This exception is thrown when no initial context implementation can be created. The policy of how an initial context implementation is selected is described in the documentation of the InitialContext class.

This exception can be thrown during any interaction with the InitialContext, not only when the InitialContext is constructed. For example, the implementation of the initial context might lazily retrieve the context only when actual methods are invoked on it. The application should not have any dependency on when the existence of an initial context is determined.

Synchronization and serialization issues that apply to NamingException apply directly here.
