          Configuring the Seibel RA should not be different from configuring the generic RA , I am assuing that you are configuring the Seibel RA as the outbound RA .
          All you need to do is to follow these steps
          1) Deploy the Seibel RA in the Jboss , this is done by deploying the seibel related rar in the $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy directory.
          2) Configure/Deploy the ConnectionFactory through the -ds.xml file .
          3) Verify the deployments through the jmx-console by looking at the jboss.jca:* MBeans .

          Have a look at the sample application as explained at here , it is file base EIS .
          http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r5/html/ch7.chapt.html

          If you still don't get things working get back with the details that you have tried .

              Hi Vicky/all.

              I deployed the Adapter and -ds.xml as it is. But I was unable to get the reference via jndi lookup. That always says "Siebel Adapter not bound".

              But I can see it in the JMX console.

              Also I cant get the jndi reference to quatz sample of jboss. I figured out that there is no -ds.xml file for quatz samlpe.. Pls explain me why that is no need for the quatz sample. The only -ds.xml that jboss has used is for hsqldb-ds.xml

              It would be grate at least I can get the reference to quatz via jndi.. So I can do some search based on that.

              Thanks

                JCA adapter comes in two flavors i.e inbound/outbound adapters .

                For the outbound adapter there should be the connectivity from AS to EIS , the AS component gets the reference of the connection to the external EIS(DB or JMS provider) through the JNDI . That is the reason you see datasource related -ds.xml files containing the jndi entry .

                For the inbound adapter there is an interaction from EIS to AS , the messages are utilized by the endpoints which are of type MDB . Quartz is of this type , it is basically the inbound type adapter .

                For more details have a look at the JCA specs and once again read this
                http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r5/html/ch7.chapt.html

                Connectivity to the seibel looks to me as outbound connectivity , you can verify this from the ra.xml file of the seibel adapter .
