Hello Megha... It is very easy.. the thing u want to do is
first log in sun admin console http://localhost:4848 then.. give user name and passwd then go to the path like this
Resources -> JDBC -> Connection Pool
first you have to create the connection pool then only u can use it as a JDBC Resource.. ok
now.. click the new button in the connection pool
type like this
name : test resource type : java.sql.datasource database vendor : oracle
click next -> datasource class name = oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleDataSource (this will be default) click next ->
in the next page.. give following property: username : scott pwd : tiget url :jdbc racle:thin:@<ip address>:<port number>:<database name> egs is like this url = jdbc racle:thin:@172.16.0.4:1521 racle (ok)
then click finish.. click ping!! to test the connection if ping succeeded!! then connection is ok if showing some error!! then u have to download the thin driver for oracle from oracle website the file name will be class12.zip download that file.. and save it in <Appserver Path>/domain/domain1/lib/
then u go to the admin console path... click the Application Server from the left menu.. go to JVM Settings and then click the Path settings
there u can see the text area for Classpath Suffix: in that text area.. u have to give the path.. of the thin driver in my system i give like this
click save!! again go to the connection pool.. and click ping... it will be successful.. then go to the JDBC Resource!! and click new button!! give the jndi name : jdbc/test the pool name will be in the combo and give description!! click ok..
now.. it is ready for the database programming..
try this out... all the best
