    Jboss, JBuilder and Ms Access

    patbier Newbie

      Hello, i work on a J2EE project for my studies.
      I use JBoss 3.0.4 / Tomcat 4.1.12, and JBuilder8 for the developpement. I use CMP Beans to read / write in a database. First, i worked with MySql but now i have to use Ms Access.

      I need your help, because, i have difficulties in connecting JBoss with Ms Access, whereas it was easy with MySql.

      I now describe what i've done and please, tell me where i'm wrong, i need your advice.

      - in JBuilder 8, in Tools, DataBase Pilot, i used the driver sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver and as the URL jdbc:odbc:BDAccessGPAO

      then it found the access database with Windows odbc and i can define EJB CMP Beans from this source

      - in JBoss, i copied \docs\examples\jca\msaccess-service.xml in \server\default\deploy
      i modified the following lines :

      <config-property name="ConnectionURL" type="java.lang.String">jdbc:odbc:BDAccessGPAO Database</config-property>
      <config-property name="DriverClass" type="java.lang.String">sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver</config-property>

      then, how can i modify this file : \server\default\conf\standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml ??

      <datasource-mapping>Hypersonic SQL</datasource-mapping>

      i need to modify the database type (mysql, oracle...) but access miss so i don't modify this file

      - then , i created EJB CMP. for instance, i created an EJB called "Gammes" for a table "gammes". i wrote a finder : FindAll
      SELECT OBJECT(p) FROM Gammes p

      - then , i wrote a javabean "GammesAccessJavaBean", which i quote a part :

      public class GammesAccessJavaBean {
      GammesRemoteHome home;
      private final static Enumeration EMPTY_ENUMERATION =
      new Vector().elements();
      public GammesAccessJavaBean() {

      try {

      InitialContext jndiContext = new InitialContext();
      Object ref = jndiContext.lookup("GammesAccessRemote");

      home =
      (GammesRemoteHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,
      catch (Exception ie) {



      public Collection liste() {

      try {
      Collection myFound = home.findAll();
      return myFound;

      catch (Exception e) {
      return null;


      so from a jsp, i execute the function "liste" but the operation speds a lot of time and results aren't complete.

      Please help me and sorry for my bad english
