Hibernate – org.hibernate.HibernateException: Unable to locate current JTA transaction

It started with a “org.hibernate.HibernateException: Could not find datasource” which was resolved by moving the hibernate-cfg.xml to the root folder (above WEB-INF).

occurs when getSessionFactory is attempted. Direct connection to db (w/o JBoss DS) works fine.
