    link -> java:/DefaultDS

    klyall Newbie

      When I add a datasource and then reference it from an EJB using a resource-ref tag, it always shows up as OracleDS[link -> java:/DefaultDS] where DefaultDS is the embedded HypersonicSQL database.

      Why does it show this?

      Does this mean that my EJB will be talking to the DefaultDS instead of my new OracleDS?

          Because you haven't specifed the jndi name for the
          resource manager in jboss.xml






          <resource-manager res-class="">

            Thanks for that, I have now got the "link ->" showing correctly.

            I have still not fixed my overall problem though as I think my JBoss/EJB config knowledge is not too good.

            I have an application with several CMP entity beans that I want to use the OracleDS.

            Therefore I have specified defaults in jbosscmp-jdbc.xml as:


            I also have a resource manager in jboss.xml to map the JNDI name to resource name:


            Do I have to specify for each CMP Bean something in ejbjar.xml and/or in jbosscmp-jdbc.xml to link the CMP Bean to the specific datasource or is adding a resource-ref for each CMP Bean not required.

            I can't see where the application server makes the connection between a CMP Bean and its datasource.

            Thanks in advance for any help.

              You do not need to configure a <resource-ref> if you have
              configured it in jbosscmp-jdbc.xml

              The <resource-ref> allows you to lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/DataSoruce");

                Thanks again Adrian.

                I thought the resource-ref on the CMP Bean looked superfluous.

                In my application I have several CMP entity beans and all but one are accessing the OracleDS and one rogue CMP bean is accessing the DefaultDS.

                How does a CMP Beans know which datasource to use?

                I have looked at the jbosscmp-jdbc.xml and ejbjar.xml and can't see any differences between the CMP Bean definitions.

                Is there a way I can debug this problem?
