    Third party JCA connectors - Whats out there?

    Alan Lewis Newbie

      I'm expanding my JBoss horizons beyond simple EJBs, and I'm currently doing some research on what third-party JCA connectors could be used with JBoss. The In-Q-My Server download page has an SAP JCA connector that can be downloaded for free at this URL:

      However, this connector relies on the SAP JCO package which you have to download from SAP. You have to have some sort of SAP user name in order to download that package... So, has anyone else had luck finding third party JCA connectors to plug-in to JBoss?

          Well, I think you're going to have to pay for most of these, but there's a list:

          Weblogic seems to have some kind of connector development kit, but I don't know anything else about it.

          The only free one I know of I wrote (most of);-) and it's not quite done: it's a jca-jdbc connector for the firebird rdbms. Its in cvs under client-java at firebird.sourceforge.net.

          JDO implementations for use with application servers are supposed to be based on jca interfaces, however both the JDO spec and all the implementations I've come across seem to have serious misapprehensions about jca.
