          There are several things you need to check:

          1) copy oracle-ds.xml from jboss/docs/examples/jca to jboss/server/xxx/deploy (edit the client connection and user/pass fields).
          2) make sure your persistence.xml file specifies Oracle as the datasource.
          3) download ojdbc14.jar and put it in jboss/server/xxx/lib (has Oracle drivers).
