I need to configure an OracleOCIConnectionPool so that I can use the OracleOCIConnectionPool.getProxyConnection method to have the connection act on behalf of a user other than the one used to open the connections in the pool. I also need these connections to support container managed EJB transactions, so the pool needs to be registered with WebLogic so the EJB container can access the connections. I can create the pool in the WebLogic console and configure a datasource for it, but the datasource returns only the connection, not the OracleOCIConnectionPool which is required to set a different user context for the connection. I can create the pool in code, but then how do I register it with WebLogic so I can use container managed transactions?

I don't think this is possible in WebLogic. In order to participate in a CMT or a distributed transaction WebLogic requires the source to be a TxDatasource. Unfortunately a TxDatasource can only be backed by a WebLogic ConnectionPool. You can use the Oracle JDBC Driver, but I don't think you can take advantage of Oracle's OracleOCIConnectionPool. Again, I don't think it is possible but I am not 100% sure. Contact BEA Support and see what kind of information they give you. Be sure to post back when you get the answer.
