InitialContext object, also that file names are different for each and every examples.

// Set up environment for creating initial context
Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "file:c:\\JDBCDataSource");
Context ctx = new InitialContext(env);
// Register the data source to JNDI naming service
ctx.bind("jdbc/ConnectSparkyOracle", ds);

That's the JDBC driver for the database you're planning to talk to.
Read its documentation, it will tell you what to do.
The first is a classname (provided by the driver), the second looks to be the URI for the driver to talk to the actual database (in this case a simple directory on the local filesystem, not something you'd want for a production system).

Do read some basic JDBC tutorials and your driver documentation. It makes life so much easier.
