Connection factory JNDI naming

Dejan Kitic Newbie

Hi there,

documentation states( if I understood well ) that it's posible to  bind connection factory name ( ironjacamar.xml ) to something that is related to deployment name (ie name of the rar file beeing deployed).

I was unable to find a way to do that, what I actually need is a way to have connection factory to bind to JNDI with name dependent on deployment name, is this possible?

Say something like jndi-name="my_cc_factory" where it would actually bind to say java://eis/my_deployment_name/my_cc_factory

    The ironjacamar.xml doesn't need an <archive> element, since it knows which .rar it belongs too.


    The subsystem:resource-adapters in AS7 contains that element, since it needs to know which .rar to activate.


    The <connection-definition> element contains the JNDI name for the CF bound into JNDI based on the MCF instance.

    Maybe I didnt explain well... If my ironjacamar.xml contains something like this and my rar is my_example.rar :


        <connection-definition class-name="com.deki.example.MyManagedConnectionFactory"  jndi-name="java:/eis/MyConnectionFactory" pool-name="MyCciConnectionFactory">

          <config-property name="name">My Managed Connection Factory</config-property>



    This will bind com.deki.example.MyManagedConnectionFactory under java:/eis/MyConnectionFactory

    where jndi-name is required attribute. Is there a way to make com.deki.example.MyManagedConnectionFactory bind to something that depends on the name of deployed archive in this case my_example.rar?

    Maybe say jndi-name="MyMCF" but com.deki.example.MyManagedConnectionFactory would bind to say java:/my_example/MyMCF ?

    Ah, then no.


    You could have multiple activations of the same MCF class, so that would lead to problems.
