    Using Oracle iFS with JBoss

    Punit Newbie

      Hi friends,

      I have to use Oracle's Internet File System(iFS) as an EIS(datastore) with JBoss.
      Can anyone kindly advise me how can I make JBoss to pool iFS sessions and manage the iFS Connection Pool just like it right now pools JDBC connections and also manages the Connection Pool.

      Is it possible to do this without the resource adaptor for iFS.If no does anyone know where can I find that adaptor.

      Thanks in advance and regards,

          Well, if there is a resource adapter that is definitely the way to go. If not, I would advise you to write one. It is usually not very hard to wrap a reasonable java driver in a resource adapter. If there is a sufficiently jdbc-like driver you may be able to use the existing jboss jca wrappers.

            Thanks David,
            Your reply has given me a good lead to go ahead.
            Actually iFS internally uses JDBC connections only to the Oracle database but wraps the JDBC Connection class with a LibrarySession class i.e it's actually a JDBC driver only.
            I have to pool the instances of LibrarySession.
            Do you mean to try the jbosspool-jdbc.rar in deploy\lib directory as the resource adaptor when you say 'existing jboss jca wrappers'?

            Thanks and regards,
