I am trying to understand the possibilities for deploying jdbc drivers with native libraries. For example, Microsoft SQL Server JDBC 4 driver.
I have read that JDBC4-compliant drivers (jars) can be deployed either as core modules or as hot deployments, so I can: -
a) take the jar file and copy it to the modules directory (e.g. modules/com/microsoft/sqlserver/jdbc/main) and in there provide an accompanying modules.xml file which
specifies the name of the jar
b) I can just drop the jar in the deployments folder
The example I am using (Microsoft SQL Server) provides sqljdbc_auth.dll, so we can take advantage of mirroring and windows authentication.
I understand that if I use option a) above, I can change the modules.xml to include reference to a lib sub-folder and it in turn can then contain special <os-name>-<os-arch> folders which actually
contain the .so/.dll/etc files.
If I want to use the hot deploy method, how can I wrap the jar and the native libraries up together for this to work ?
Thanks for any help
