Possible to connect to a datasource on another WebLogic instance?

Hi,

I'm using WebLogic 9.2.2. I am running a web application on machine A, and my co-worker has created a WebLogic datasource on machine B. Each machine runs its own instance of WebLogic. Is it possible to connect to the datasource from machine A? How would this be done?

Thanks, - Dave

Never tried it. However I would think it would be possible. We have connected to a datasource on a weblogic server from a standalone program. I would assume the same can be used here. You need to provide the t3 url of the server having the datasource and then invoke it using the JNDI name.

You may use foreign JNDI provider.
