I am trying to connect to Mysql from Jsp in Tomcat and I am getting Java.lang.NullPointer Exception. Please provide any help as soon as possible.

I have set the web.xml and the server.xml properly.

My web.xml contains:

<description>MySQL Test App</description>
	<resource-ref>
		  <description>DB Connection</description>
		  <res-ref-name>jdbc/TestDB</res-ref-name>
		  <res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
		  <res-auth>Container</res-auth>
	</resource-ref>

server.xml I have added this:

<Context path="/become3" docBase="become3"
			debug="5" reloadable="true" crossContext="true">

	  <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
				 prefix="localhost_become3_log." suffix=".txt"
				 timestamp="true"/>

	  <Resource name="jdbc/TestDB"
				   auth="Container"
				   type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>

	  <ResourceParams name="jdbc/TestDB">
