Hi, I would like to know from people who had already done the OCPJ7 if they have come across any question related to DataSource (a subtopic of the macrotopic JDBC).
It seems to mention some ejb libraries on the java tutorial. Should not that be out of scope? Is it necessary to try out all the datasource connections? (basic, connections pool, distributed transaction). In that case should I install JBoss in order to try them out? thanks a lot in advance.

PS: This is the link listed in the Java Programmer II tutorial path provided by Oracle.
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/jdbc/basics/sqldatasources.html
It seems a little too out of scope to me. What do you thing about it?

Very minimal if at all. You should know what a datasource is. But you aren't going to get asked about URL formats. The only objective listed on the topic is "Connect to a database by using a JDBC driver"
