Yes. But I doubt you can use the property service will work
since it is likely the parsing the -ds.xml before the property service sets them.
There's no dependency mechanism to fix it if it is wrong.
./run.sh -P file:///some/path/to/my.properties
i might not have described the problem as exact as needed.
im already using a property file which is used on bootstrap ( set -P option ).
i have declared some tokens in the jboss-service.xml files and in my oracle-ds.xml file.
The tokens in the jboss-server.xml are properly parsed where as the onces in the oracle-ds.xml file are not touched.
Eventually it looks to me like the bootstrap -P option does not work for any jca related configuration files.
If this should be the case ( I could still made a mistake myself ) is there a way to let a jca adapter use a -ds.xml configuration file containing placeholders ????
thanks again for your help
