Petstore is rubbish. Try XPetstore.
Your cloudscape deployment is incomplete, unless you
didn't post it all.
Also that is 3.0 configuration. In 3.2 you should use a -ds.xml
examples can be found in docs/examples/jca
but nobody has contributed a cloudsape version.
You'll have to copy a different one and change it.
Is use of -ds.xml mandatory or will the older config still work - I note the new format is then transformed with XSL - presumably to the older format.
The complete config for cloudscape I am using is at
http://www.stanford.edu/~mdelgado/jboss/cloudscape-service.xml as per the setup instructions from that site.
Thanks for the tip on xpetstore and the jca examples. I think I'll try a cloudscape -ds.xml first, then switch to xpetstore as a fallback.
Is there some thread/article on why xpetstore is better than petstore - I guess it could be a hot topic!
No the old format won't work in 3.2
As I have said many times if something that works with 3.0 you can make it work with 3.2 by moving the managed connection factory
mbean from the connection manager mbean to the pool mbean.
Just use the -ds.xml it is much simpler.
For critques of petstore use google.
That's a shame about lack of the backwards compatibility on a dot release.
I see the instructions for configuring xpetstore on JBoss (at xpetstore.sourceforge.net) apply to 3.0.x, so it would appear I would run into the same issues re datasource configuration.
I appears to me, the path of least resistance is to install JBoss 3.0.8. At least xpetstore/petstore might be easy to install.
Once it's working on 3.0, and I've got some further understanding of the system I might try again with 3.2 or maybe 4 if it's out by then.
