Outdated/incorrect docu is worse than no documentation

I was struggling with this How to use JDBC and transactions in Tomcat with JOTM. JOTM was always throwing java:comp away after the first request (the first lookup went through nicely). Thanks to a bug report from Matt Raible, I found out that carol now needs more options in the property file:


# do not use CAROL JNDI wrapper

# do not start a name server

# use the apache naming factory

While browsing more tracker items, more and more things come clear.
Please: update the documentation if you make such big changes in a project. Wrong documentation is worse than none.
