Have we ever done, thought about, anything like this beyond the installations in the labs for specific support issues?
Labs is the only way to do it since we can't distribute
the jars to even compile tests for non-free thirdparty software.
That is unless you want to write everything using reflection. :-)
I have been working on this, and am at the point where I need to start testing...that's where the problem comes in :-)
I am interested in helping you test this new feature on Oracle. I need to have reauthentication support for this database, and I'm willing to code the specific Oracle plugin to implement this. Please post a patch with the source code.
This topic is pretty old but the question of re-authentication support in JBoss JCA seems still to be open.
Since we face the issues with the JCA pooling I opened a related topic http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&p=4235037#4235037 and there is also corresponding JIRA task https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBJCA-94
