    How to configure JBoss for applications with libraries declared as provided?

    Fernando Costa Newbie

      I have a Java Web application that uses the OracleConnection JDBC class to execute some PL/SQL commands. As in our production environment the Oracle driver library is shared by other applications, I need to declare it with a provided Maven dependency scope:









      How should I configure my local JBoss EAP 6.2 to make this library available for my application? I have tryed to configure it as a core module using jboss-cli as described in


      Install a JDBC Driver as a Core Module


      This was the last command I have executed:







      Commnad output:


          {"outcome" => "success"}


      However, at startup our application try to get a connection via DriverManager:


          OracleConnection conn = (OracleConnection) DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);


      This line of code is raising the following exception:


          java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:oracle:thin:@


      By other hand, if I change the scope to compile, then the Oracle library is deployed along with my application (inside META-INF/lib folder) and everything works fine.


      How can I fix this issue? Are core modules proper for this?


      Is there another way of sharing libraries with multiple applications using JBoss?
