This chapter defined the basic JNDI API and common usage conventions as they apply to J2EE. You learned how to configure the J2EE component ENC using the standard and JBoss specific deployment descriptors. You were also introduced to the JBoss JNDI provider service, JBossNS, and saw an overview of its architecture. Lastly, you saw the MBeans of the JBossNS service that controlled its configuration.
The next JBoss component you will cover is the JBossMQ service. JBossMQ is a Java Message Service-compatible messaging service implementation.
