Exception: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException

If you try to use Camel without Spring using code something like this

CamelContext context = new DefaultCamelContext();
context.addRoutes(new MyRouteBuilder());


You might get an exception like this

     [java] Caused by: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file:  java.naming.factory.initial
     [java] 	at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(
     [java] 	at javax.naming.InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx(
     [java] 	at javax.naming.InitialContext.getURLOrDefaultInitCtx(
     [java] 	at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(
     [java] 	at org.apache.camel.impl.JndiRegistry.lookup(

This is because if you are not using Spring then the default Registry implementation uses JNDI.

A simple workaround for this is to specify a JNDI provider. An easy fix is to create a file called on the classpath and give it this content...

java.naming.factory.initial = org.apache.camel.util.jndi.CamelInitialContextFactory
