    MC,SEAM,Tomcat DataSource configuration at runtime?

    Carsten Hoehne Master

      before using Seam managed session in my application and jboss microcontainer i was used to specify my datasource in file context.xml in the META-INF Directory in my app. This way, after deployment one can edit this file in the desired tomcatfolder (Tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/.xml) to change the database.

      I followed the instructions to set up seam and hibernate on Tomcat(chapter 9.6 of the seam manual).
      So now I have to supply a jboss-bean.xml file. This file is packaged in the war and can not easily edited at runtime.

      My question are: Is it possible to achieve to change the database at runtime? What have i to do?

      By now, for every targetsystem i do this:
      1. edit jboss-bean.xml
      2. deploy the app
      3. copy the resulting war to the right system

      But what i need is:
      1. deploy the app
      2. copy the war to all target systems
      3. configure the right database into the app after deployment

      The jndiName should be the same for all instances but the connectionUrl and the userName should change.

      jboss-beans.xml looks like:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <deployment xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:jboss:bean-deployer bean-deployer_1_0.xsd"
       <bean name="Naming" class="org.jnp.server.SingletonNamingServer"/>
       <bean name="TransactionManagerFactory" class="org.jboss.seam.microcontainer.TransactionManagerFactory"/>
       <bean name="TransactionManager" class="java.lang.Object">
       <constructor factoryMethod="getTransactionManager">
       <factory bean="TransactionManagerFactory"/>
       <bean name="bazDatasourceFactory" class="org.jboss.seam.microcontainer.DataSourceFactory">
       <property name="driverClass">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
       <property name="connectionUrl">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/bazseam</property>
       <property name="userName">root</property>
       <property name="jndiName">java:/hibernateDatasource</property>
       <property name="minSize">0</property>
       <property name="maxSize">10</property>
       <property name="blockingTimeout">1000</property>
       <property name="idleTimeout">100000</property>
       <property name="transactionManager"><inject bean="TransactionManager"/></property>
       <bean name="bazDatasource" class="java.lang.Object">
       <constructor factoryMethod="getDataSource">
       <factory bean="bazDatasourceFactory"/>
       <bean name="bazDatabaseFactory" class="org.jboss.seam.microcontainer.HibernateFactory"/>
       <bean name="bazDatabase" class="java.lang.Object">
       <constructor factoryMethod="getSessionFactory">
       <factory bean="bazDatabaseFactory"/>

      I hope that your answer is not: change to an applicationserver, there you have an xxx-ds.xml file which can be changed at runtime.
      I have to stay with tomcat and microcontainer.
