I know it is possible to store Java objects in an LDAP server once the server's schema has been extended.
The question now is does JBoss have a facility to store the data source information in an LDAP tree and pull them out at boot-time so we do not have to put that information in ASCII, unsecured files?
If not, we right a Bean that would pull the information out, instantiate a class or two and then can we "register" the ready data source w/JBoss's JNDI service?
Thanks in advance.
My first advice to you is... "Secure your files".
Secondly, anything is possible, as JBoss is open-source. Whether it can be done "out-of-the-box", I'm not sure.
