Hi All,

Can I use @Resource annotation in web logic version ?

The following code is working :
DataSource datasource = (DataSource) initialContext.lookup(DATASOURCE_CONTEXT);

But when I am using the annotation it’s failed.
@Resource(name = "dy/mydb/ds")
private DataSource ds;

Chen, This has been moved to the WebLogic forum, you are much more likely to get an answer there.

Thanks Wendy.

Hey Chen, what are you trying to achieve in your application?

We would like to know what exactly have you tried till now; and the issue that you have faced !

If you intend to use dependency injection using @Resource, it can be achieved.

Regards, Sud.
