Ahh now I think I may know what it is -- someone please confirm:
If you dont have an jbosscmp-jdbc.xml in your web-inf (in the deployable jar file along with ejb-jar.xml) then jboss uses (defaults to) whatever is in standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml
Is that correct?
Thnaks for any help/ideas
yes. If you don't specify it will use default settings (hypersonic). You need to tell it the name you set up in your database service so it can use that. Also specify what mappings to use (for your db) and away you go.
