    dynamic database

    heo con Newbie

      In my project, I want to update data in one table of one specific database. For example, in 2008, I want to execute data in 2008's database. But in the next year, 2009, I want to execute data in 2009's database. I mean that in the first day of new year, I want to create new database, then I'll program and execute on that database. My purpose is that data of one year will be stored in one database; in the first day of next year, data of new year will be stored in new database. Anyone know? Thanks alot for all reply!

          Sometime in December create the next year's database. At 1 second to midnight on Dec 31st, bring down the app server, change the *-ds.xml file to reference the new database, and bring the app server back up.

          You might be able to accomplish the same thing by simply replacing the *-ds.xml file at midnight (with the app server still running), but the app server restart might go smoother. If you decide to replace the *-ds.xml file, you should try it on a test system before doing it in production.
