    Why do I need remote access to a DS and what does actually h

      Hi,

      I discovered today that since version 4.0 JBoss allows remote clients to connect to a data-source by setting use-java-context to false. A colleague of mine tried it today and it works.

      But, for what use-cases do you need this?
      I always thought it is a bad idea to give a database connection to someone outside the container.

      And, does someone know what does actually happen from the technical perspective?
      Does this datasource on a remote client still support pooling, transactions etc?

      I would be grateful for any clarification :-)
