This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
In the persistence.xml configuration file, we have data source got it from web server configuration file, and created by server like Jboss or tomcat.
I just wonder how to create this same data source via Java stand-alone application?
I have Java standalone application embedded Jetty server running with JPA module. Question is how to setup or create data source from my Java application just like web server; which called by persistence.xml?
You can use DataSource such as C3P0. So instead of getting it from the JNDI, you can configure the datasource information in the persistence.xml, e.g.
I assume you use Hibernate

I know this method, I just don't want users to modify persistence.xml directly. I plan to provide customized format ot properties file, so users can easily change database parameters when application is running their environment. I just wonder how to create data source Java programming just like Java web application server.
