The Data Source was defined with a name other than ApplicationDB.
When setting up the JDBC Data Source you have to set the name to ApplicationDB 


The Data Source name EXACTLY as to "ApplicationDB"

  1. Log into the WebLogic Server console.
  2. Under the Domain Structure region on the left, drill down to Data Sources ([domain] > Services > Data Sources).
  3. Delete the existing data source.
  4. Select New > Generic Data Source.
  5. In the Name field, enter 'ApplicationDB'.
  6. In the JNDI Name, enter 'jdbc/ApplicationDBDS
  7. For Database Type, select 'Oracle' from the list of values.
  8. Save and Restart the managed server.
