    JBoss 7.1 - use of system properties in configuration file?

    albremer Newbie

      I'm trying to configure a datasource for JBoss 7.1 by using system properties:

      -------------

      <datasource jndi-name="java:/myapp/datasource/jdbc" pool-name="MyAppJdbcPool" enabled="true" use-java-context="true">

          <connection-url>${myapp.datasource.jdbc.url}</connection-url>

          <driver>${myapp.datasource.jdbc.driver}</driver>

          <security>

              <user-name>${myapp.datasource.jdbc.user}</user-name>

              <password>${myapp.datasource.jdbc.pass}</password>

          </security>

      </datasource>

      -------------

       

      Unfortunately this does not work as JBoss does not replace the properties. On startup I get:

      --------------

      JBAS014775:    New missing/unsatisfied dependencies:

            service jboss.jdbc-driver.${myapp_datasource_jdbc_driver} (missing) dependents: [service jboss.data-source.java:/myapp/datasource/jdbc]

      --------------

       

      Is there any way to accomplish this? The idea behind it is that all our developers use the same configuration file and just a custom properties file to set their configuration.
