    datasource and servlets help

    Jen Newbie

      I am new to j2ee and moreso to EJB containers!

      I have installed JBOSS 3.2.1 and upgraded mySQL to v4.1 and am using driver mysql-connector-java-3.0.8 which I put in the C:\JBOSS_HOME\server\default\lib

      then i copied the mySQL-ds.xml file from C:\JBOSS_HOME\docs\examples\jca to \deploy and changed a few things


      <local-tx-datasource>
      <jndi-name>MySql</jndi-name>
      <connection-url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/valentines</connection-url>
      <driver-class>com.mysql.jdbc.driver</driver-class>
      <user-name></user-name>

      </local-tx-datasource>



      and I deleted hsqldb-ds.xml from \deploy
      SHould jndi-name be DefaultDS here?

      then I changed any instance of Hypersonic DS to mySQL in two files
      C:\JBOSS_HOME\server\default\conf\standardjaws.xml
      and
      C:\JBOSS_HOME\server\default\conf\standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml

      I've gotten a simple HelloWorld app to work and now am trying to work with session beans. With the hello example i typed localhost:8080/Hello and it worked

      for the session example I've tried the same thing- put my beans in a jar file in the \deploy dir and create a dir there with a .war extention
      /deploy
      /MyApplication.war
      /images
      /META-INF
      /WEB-INF
      web.xml
      jboss-web.xml
      /classes
      All your servlets go in here.

      and so I map the servelt to /search and tried to call it the same way- am I in the wrong context? What do I need to do to get this to work? Do I have to war the servlets in order to test them? If so where do I save the actual classes and where to put the war?

      Any help would be great as I am on my last nerve!! I promise to post when I get it sorted too!
      Thanks,
      Jen

          just wanted to add a few files
          the tassie servlet/session bean example is from
          Java for the Web with Servlets, JSP and EJB: A Developers Guide to Scalable j2EE Solutions. Good beginners book that uses JBOSS but avoids the EJB containers details.
