Affects Version/s: 3.3.0 GA (4.1.0 GA Suite Release)
Fix Version/s: None
Setting up a JNDI connection does not seem to work out of the box. To make it work it's necessary to:
1) grab some simple-jndi-xxxxx.jar from somewhere else (copy from PRD, PDI or PME) and copy to schema-workbench/lib
2) create schema-workbench/simple-jndi directory
3) copy/create schema-workbench/simple-jndi/jdbc.properties (again, best to copy from PDI or some such)
BTW: it is documented in the KB that workbench would look in "$USER_HOME/.pentaho/simple-jndi/default.properties" Not sure about that. The schema-workbench/simple-jndi directory needs to be created in any case, otherwise simple-jndi fails with an exception: "parameter must be a directory".
