I am going to be using REDIS as a NoSQL data store and am looking for ways to create a datasource connection. I don't want to connect to REDIS through my Java code but instead create a datasource entry in the standalone.xml configuration. This way the data store is opened when the system starts, not when my code is executed, uses connection pooling, etc.
In looking at the various options, I'll most likely need some type of driver to make the connection (just like a JDBC for PostgreSQL) but can't find one (or at least one that doesn't cost the GNP of a small country).
I would have to think that with the popularity of REDIS that others have accomplished this as well. I appreciate all help.
