Hi All,

I have come across the resource manger term numerous time while going through java books.But, I am not fully confident of what it means

Can anyone explain to me what resource manager in java means.

For your reference I am quoting a part of a line from a java book which says "resource manager like database"

what all things can be categorized as a resource manager?

Please help.

Abhisek

Abhisek Resource Manager is a Class,in which java loads properties files and their value will be given to the java class as a variable.

Resource Manager are used when they want to externalize the string from the java class.

I found this definition from "EJB 3 in Action"

In enterprise transaction management, the component that takes care of transactions for a particular
resource is called a resource manager. Remember that a resource need not just be a database
like Oracle. It could be a message server like IBM MQSeries or an enterprise information system (EIS)
like PeopleSoft CRM.
