If you have a look at
And follow the 'JBoss-Docs' download link you will be able to download the 'JCAConfig.pdf' that describes the*-ds.xml structure which is required to deploy a resource adapter in JBoss.
Could you please tell me where in directory structure should the *-ds.xml be present.
Do I have to create a ear.
Sorry to sound stupid. But, as I mentioned I am new to JBoss.
Do I need a corresponding jboss-service.xml
Looks like I need to take some Jboss training.
Looking at you original post it looks as if the structure of your .rar file is correct, the .rar file can be put into the deploy folder.
You would then put the *-service.xml or *-ds.xml (Whichever one is appropriate for the version of JBoss that you are using) also into the deploy folder.
