      Does anybody have experiences with configuring interbase/firebird as datasource for jboss?

          Yes, with Firebird. What problem are you having?

            Do you tell me how to configurate firebird step by step?
            thanks.

              Assuming Firebird and Jboss 3.0.x, copy the [JBOSS]\docs\examples\jca\firebird-service.xml file into your deploy directory. Download the driver (firebirdsql.rar), and copy that into your delpoy directory. In firebird-service.xml update the relevent properties to match your setup (normally just the database path/file names). Start Jboss, and you should be up and running.

                I operated following:
                I downloaded the driver(firebirdsql.jar),and copy that into [JBOSS]\server\default\deploy.
                firebird-service.xml,too.Then I changed <config-property name="Database" type="java.lang.String">[server]/3050:[path to gdb database file]</config-property> to <config-property name="Database" type="java.lang.String">[server]/3050:[d:\java\firebird\TEST2.FDB]</config-property> in firebird-service.xml.
                result:FAILDED
                How to update the relevent properties?Assuming my datasource:d:\java\firebird.
                %firebird-home% locate g:\firebird15;
                thanks!

                  Hi,

                  You need to deploy the firebirdsql.rar file, not the jar.

                  > <config-property name="Database"
                  > type="java.lang.String">[server]/3050:[path to gdb
                  > database file]</config-property> to <config-property
                  > name="Database"
                  > type="java.lang.String">[server]/3050:[d:\java\firebird \TEST2.FDB]</config-property> in
                  > firebird-service.xml.

                  This should be

                  <config-property name="Database" type="java.lang.String">localhost/3050:d:\java\firebird \TEST2.FDB</config-property>

                  Assuming the Firebird server is running on the local machine

                        That should work.

                        Not much to worry about really. Its a load order thing, and the firebird-service is being deployed before the firebird rar.

                        If you make a small change to the firebird-service.xml file (e.g. add a space) after JBoss has started it will re-deploy correctly. Or you can comment out the FirebirdManager MBean in the xml file, if you are not using it.
