29    * This exception is thrown when a naming operation proceeds to a point
30    * where a context is required to continue the operation, but the
31    * resolved object is not a context. For example, Context.destroy() requires
32    * that the named object be a context. If it is not, NotContextException
33    * is thrown. Another example is a non-context being encountered during
34    * the resolution phase of the Context methods.
35    *<p>
36    * It is also thrown when a particular subtype of context is required,
37    * such as a DirContext, and the resolved object is a context but not of
38    * the required subtype.
39    * <p>
40    * Synchronization and serialization issues that apply to NamingException
41    * apply directly here.
