    Utilizing Non-Default Datsource With JBOSS 4

    Ethan Stein Newbie

      I am using JBOSS 4.0.5 on Microsoft Windows XP with a default datasource of MS SQL. I wish to be able to interact with another datasource that is Oracle 10g. However, the only documentation/posts I have found deal with setting up the default datasource to be Oracle. I want to keep my MS SQL default DB and just pull data from the oracle database. What sort of configurations do I have to do?

      I tried simply adding the oracle-ds.xml file from \jboss\docs\examples\jca to the \jboss\server\default\deploy directory and also adding the oracle jdbc drivers to the CLASSPATH of my startup script (i.e. CLASSPATH=...;%ORACLE_HOME%\db_2\jdbc\lib\classes12.zip)

      However, when I start up JBOSS and try to interact with the oracle database, it says the jndi is not valid. Am I forgetting something?

      Do I need to add the ojdbc14.jar file as well or use the classes12.jar file instead?


      My oracle-ds.xml file looks like this:

      <datasources>
       <local-tx-datasource>
       <jndi-name>jdbc/OracleDS</jndi-name>
       <connection-url>jdbc:oracle:thin:@test2:1521:orcl</connection-url>
       <driver-class>oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver</driver-class>
       <user-name>hr</user-name>
       <password>hr</password>
       <exception-sorter-class-name>org.jboss.resource.adapter.jdbc.vendor.OracleExceptionSorter</exception-sorter-class-name>
       <metadata>
       <type-mapping>Oracle8</type-mapping>
       </metadata>
       </local-tx-datasource>
      </datasources>


      I am using all of the default configurations for the login-config.xml, standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml, and standardjaws.xml

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
