If accessing a Tomcat (4.1.27 in my case) jndi tree from another jvm (i.e. command line) what values should I use for Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, Context.PROVIDER_URL, etc. for Tomcat?

I believe 4.x has a JDNI implementation, but the description of how to attach to it externally is not very good. If the INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY is supposed to be "org.apache.naming.java.javaURLContextFactory" (as I've seen hinted at elsewhere) what is the syntax of such a url?

I hate to answer my own questions. After looking a little further, the reason the documentation doesn't detail the environment configuration from accessing the JNDI implementation from outside the servlet container JVM is because you can't! Read the 8th reply:

java.sun.com forum thread on tomcat jndi implementation

I also found this, which seems to confirm:
notes about the Eclipse IDE JNDI browser plugin with various JNDI implementations
