I have made a datasource which uses oracle thin driver, when i look up for the datasource using jndi, say i get a datasouce object ds, so i make a call ds.getConnection(userid,password), but what i want is to use ds.getConnection(), so i wont be giving userid and password in my class file, i havent been able to configure where i have to give userid and password for the datasource in admin console of websphere. The functionality achieved will be security regarding connecting to Oracle.
