Summary     : A JNDI implementation
Description :
Simple-JNDI is intended to solve two problems. The first is
that of finding a container independent way of opening a
database connection, the second is to find a good way of
specifying application configurations.
1. Unit tests or prototype code often need to emulate the
  environment within which the code is expected to run.
  A very common one is to get an object of type
  javax.sql.DataSource from JNDI so a java.sql.Connection
  to your database of choice may be opened.
2. Applications need configuration; a JNDI implementation
  makes a handy location for configuration values. Either
  as a globally available system, or via IoC through the
  use of some kind of JNDI configuration facade (see gj-config).
A solution: simple implementation of JNDI. It is entirely
library based, so no server instances are started, and it
sits upon Java .properties files, XML files or Windows-style
.ini files, so it is easy to use and simple to understand.
The files may be either on the file system or in the classpath.

Update Information:
