Hi all,
I'm very new in activiti and workflow apis and my english isn't so good, sorry if there is a lot of errors.

I'm doing a POC to use Activiti at a government department in Brazil and I have any doubts about configure Activiti Explorer in a corporate environment.
I did the follow things:

1- I just read a activiti in action book (for activiti version 5.9 unfortunately);
2- Donwload Activiti 5.16.4 version;
3- Download a tomcat 7 version;
4- Download the activiti project in github (for study);
5- Copy activiti-explorer.war and put in tomcat;
6- I removed the properties: db.properties and engine.properties and put in classpath folder in tomcat;
7- I configure the property db.properties with the oracle configurations;
8- I configure the engine.properties to not generate demo datas;
And, it work fine, but i would like to use jndi lookup for datasource confguration, not use the variables directly in the db.properties.
I know I need to configure the context.xml (resource) in tomcat, but, how could i tell to activiti explorer to use this datasource?

PS: In the step 8, about the engine.properties, I found the properties only search in the source code, the documentation talks about activiti-standalone-context.xml, but I think this archive doen't exist anymore.
