you're getting a nullpointerexception in your contextInitialized method.
start with a System.out.println for your arg variable, to check if that passes what you think it is passing.
add to each
e.printStackTrace()
a precision:
System.out.println("error in first catch");
e.printStackTrace();
..
System.out.println("error in second catch");
e.printStackTrace();

and you'll quickly know where the error occurs, that 'll make it easier to improve the code.

thnks for the reply. I already use what u said and error comes from line number 50 ie

conn=ds.getConnection();

hello i solve above problem on my own
problem is in given statement :
"ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/TestMZ");"
i wrote env which is to be evn
thank you
