    jdbc datasource and resource adaptor

    john tan Newbie

      Hi all,

      I am studying "jboss connector" at the moment, i m confused by some of the topics.
      As far as i know, in order to create a jboss compatible resource adaptor, we have to implement several interfaces like managedconnectionfactory, managedconnection, connectionfactory and so, then pack them into a rar file together with a ra.xml descriptor so that jboss can deploy it properly. up to now, everything is clear.
      Then the jdbc datasource topic comes up, it is absolutely different story, i cannot find any connection between jdbc datasource and resource adaptor since jdbc driver doesn't implement JCA interfaces, how jboss AS treats it as a resource adaptor? Does jboss dynamically generate all those JCA implementations for standard jdbc driver?

      If anyone knows please advise. Many thanks.

      John
