    Creating datasources in separate VMs

    Damon Newbie

      Does anyone have any examples of using datasources in a VM outside of JBoss (3.0.0)? In JBoss 2.4.x, there was a JDBCPoolDataSource class that could be constructed by giving it a set of JDBC properties. This class no longer exists in JBoss3 and it seems that only way to get a DataSource is to pull it out of JNDI after a connection manager has dropped one in, but since DataSources aren't remotable, there's no way to get at it from an external VM.

          You are correct, there is no way supported by jboss to supply a DataSource implementation backed by pooling in a non-jboss vm. Is there some reason we should be supporting this? If you really want it, you could implement a default ConnectionManager that did some pooling for the Local jdbc wrapper, and write a few lines to create a ManagedConnectionFactory and ConnectionFactory (DataSource, here) using the default ConnectionManager. You can recycle the InternalManagedConnectionPool code for the pooling. I did this for the firebird jca-jdbc driver (in the FBWrappingDataSource).
