javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name jdbc is not bound in this Context

Problem

JSF 2.0 web application, a managed bean uses @Resource to inject the “jdbc/mkyongdb” datasource into a ds property.


@ManagedBean(name="customer")
@SessionScoped
public class CustomerBean implements Serializable{
 
	//resource injection
	@Resource(name="jdbc/mkyongdb")
	private DataSource ds;

When deployed to Tomcat 6, it hits following error messages for the MySQL datasource configuration.


com.sun.faces.mgbean.ManagedBeanCreationException: 
        An error occurred performing resource injection on managed bean customer
	at com.sun.faces.mgbean.BeanBuilder.injectResources(BeanBuilder.java:207)
