> Has anyone tried to use toplink with jboss ?
I am definitely interested in this topic. We are currently using Toplink with jboss, but have reached the stage where we would like to integrate connection pooling with our toplink-based java application (mostly stateless session beans and java beans) that is currently running on JBoss/Oracle/Win2k. Wondering if anyone would be able to answer any of the following questions:
- What is the recommended approach to integrating connection pooling with toplink? (e.g. should we use toplink's own connection pooling mechanism or use jboss's implementation?)
- What are the tradeoffs of the two approaches?
- Are there any known issues with either of the two approaches?
I would really appreciate any assistance with this issue.
Is anyone using toplink to handle EJB CMP?
We're looking at porting one of our web applications from a commercial app server to JBoss & Tomcat. The problem is that the app is using Toplink for CMP services and i'd like to port the app over w/o having to remove toplink. (atleast initially) Is this possible? Has anyone done any work in this area?
you should use the external connection pool not the toplink connection pool which does not support the cocurrency call.
I have been using TopLink 9.0.3 integrated with JBoss 3.0 to 3.2 accessing Oracle 9.2.0 and using JTS and external connection pooling for sometime. Also using XA DataSource. Or I should say I have struggled with it due to integration bugs. I started with 3.0.4 and worked up to 3.0.7 and found many bugs and challenges along the way. You can find most the of problems I have encountered in the forums here and some of what I have done to get past them. I am currently running JBoss 3.2.1 and it seems to work well although I still have one challenge which is trying to figure out why it believes it needs to close my connections. Let me know if I can help, but you will find a how-to and more info on TopLink and JBoss by searching the forums with my name.
Opps did not look at the date, you must be an expert by now or given up.
