    JDBC Connection

    nitro Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm new to nukes (and to jboss and the rest of the j2ee - stuff). I just wrote my first small block and module. Its great, thx for the framework!

      But for a first approach I want to connect to the database with JDBC (later then with ejbs, but this can wait). How do I get the datasource to connect to the database. It would be great, if somebody could post some code or give some tips.

      thx
      Martin

          the datasource is already "connected" when it deploys, you just need to ask for a connection.

          InitalContext context = new InitialContext();
          Datasource ds = (DataSource) context.lookup("java:/NukesDS");
          Connection conn = ds.getConnection();
          


          of course, you'll need to handle any exceptions those methods may throw, etc, but that should be enough to get you started.
