This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm new to JBoss, and attempting to connect it to our MS SQL Server 6.5 database. I'm following the great examples from the O'Reilly JBoss Workbook, appendix A (simple example). JBoss: jboss-3.2.1_tomcat-4.1.24 OS: Win2K JDBC Driver: JSQLConnect 2_26 I modified the titandb-ds.xml file, using the examples\jca mssql-ds.xml example, as below, and deployed to the deploy directory: <datasources> <local-tx-datasource> <jndi-name>MSSQLDS</jndi-name> <connection-url>jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://QA_DATABASE:1433;DatabaseName=qa_customers</connection-url> <driver-class>com.jnetdirect.jsql.JSQLDriver</driver-class> <user-name>uname</user-name> <password>pw</password> </local-tx-datasource> </datasources>
And finally, my jbosscmp-jdbc.xml stuff (I don't know what to put for the datasource-mapping tag, thus the -???- here): <jbosscmp-jdbc> <defaults> <datasource>java:/MSSQLDS</datasource> <datasource-mapping> -???- </datasource-mapping> <create-table>false</create-table> <remove-table>false</remove-table> </defaults> <enterprise-beans> <entity> (snip) </entity> </enterprise-beans> </jbosscmp-jdbc> I have copied the JDBC driver jar (JSQLConnect.jar) into jboss\server\default\lib directory. And this jar file is in my classpath too. Other than the table definition and the JDBC driver, everything else is as in the O'Reilly Appendix A example. The -ds.xml file has also been copied to the deploy directory. When deploying my application jar, JBoss throws the following exception: [ObjectName: jboss.j2ee:jndiName=StatesHomeRemote,service=EJB state: FAILED I Depend On: Depends On Me: org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error in jbosscmp-jdbc .xml : datasource-mapping -???- not found] Of course, -???- is just for this post. I've tried several different values (MSSQL, MS SQLServer, etc.), to no avail. The O'Reilly example just puts "Oracle8" there, without explaining why (simple example). I'm sure I'm missing some step, some linking XML file between JBoss and my JDBC driver, or something. I just don't know what, yet. Thanks in advance, Rick
