    Hibernate configuration with JNDI

    Leela Turanga Newbie

      I know how I can configure datasource with JNDI (create xxx-ds.xml file).

      And now I want to move my hibenate configuration properties definition away from persistence.xml and make them available via JNDI.

      I have googled a bit and found JNDIBindingServiceMgr () that allows to bind arbitrary values into JNDI and, as it is stated here (http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/jboss/jboss-eap-4.3/doc/Server_Configuration_Guide/html-single/index.html#Additional_Naming_MBeans-JNDI_Binding_Manager) even java.util.Properties object can be mapped.

      So I see the way to define hibernate properties in JNDI. But I do not see the way to reference them in persistense.xml (like I deal with datasource, please see below). Is there any possibility to do that?

      <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
      <persistence xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence"
       xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.0">
      <persistence-unit name="myEntityManager" transaction-type="JTA">
       <property name="hibernate.dialect" value="org.hibernate.dialect.MySQL5Dialect" />
       [more properties here]

      Thaks! http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/JNDIBindingServiceMgr
