The purpose of this example is to show how JNDI names can be used to specify the Data Source details in BPEL database functions like: lookup-table, query-database, and sequence-next-val.  The Data Source value is commonly specified in terms of the JDBC connect string.  However it is possible to use the JNDI name for the data source as well.
