Thank you for your prompt answer, but not sure I understand your comment. Are you saying that the answer is in the FAQ? If so, I did not find anything regarding what I am looking for. Could you please point me to the right one. I am connecting to a DB without going through the JBoss connection manager but still want to use the JBoss transaction Manager.
Thank you again.
I'm saying your question(s) ARE in the FAQ AND if you aren't using JCA
and want to go your own way, why are you in this forum at all?
You need to be in a "I need to completely understand the spec and probably do non-portable
things because I know best forum" - which usually means what you are doing is of little
interest to other people.
Or, rethink what you are doing (e.g. one datasource/pool per "client application").
very constructive! thanks :-/...
