    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:

       

          <dependency>

            <groupId>com.oracle</groupId>

            <artifactId>oracle</artifactId>

            <version>11.2.0.4</version>

            <scope>provided</scope>

          </dependency>

       

      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:

       

          /subsystem=datasources/jdbc-driver=oracle:

          add(driver-name=oracle,

          driver-module-name=oracle.jdbc,

          driver-xa-datasource-class-name=oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXADataSource)

                        

      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:@10.50.240.70:1521:doc21a

       

      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?
