By looking it up from the JNDI if your code is called by a servlet/ejb. If not, you would have to use an application client.

Hi Jeanne

Thank you for the help. Actually i am working on a servlet based application. Its a huge application so there are a lot of files. I have tried a lot but i was not able to get from where it looks up the for the datasource configured in Websphere. I will try to debug according to your advice. Any more pointers will be helpful.

You can look in web.xml file for any JDBC resource references. Then use a text editor like Notepad++ to findout usage of resource reference in your Java files.
