Hi Mandar !
Well , I�ve already done this , but I�m not sure if I�m able to describe all the steps... But I think the following recipe can take you there..
In web.xml :
<resource-ref >
<res-ref-name>jdbc/MyDSName</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<res-auth>CONTAINER</res-auth>
<res-sharing-scope>Shareable</res-sharing-scope>
</resource-ref>
In the C:\jboss-3.2.2_jetty-4.2.11\server\YourApp\deploy , you must create the postgres-ds.xml file :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- ===================================================================== -->
<!-- -->
<!-- JBoss Server Configuration -->
<!-- -->
<!-- ===================================================================== -->
<!-- $Id: postgres-ds.xml,v 1.1.2.1 2003/09/05 16:38:24 patriot1burke Exp $ -->
<!-- ==================================================================== -->
<!-- Datasource config for Postgres -->
<!-- ==================================================================== -->

<datasources>
<local-tx-datasource>
<jndi-name>PostgresDS</jndi-name>
<connection-url>jdbc ostgresql://yourserver ort/appcontext</connection-url>
<driver-class>org.postgresql.Driver</driver-class>
<user-name>user</user-name>
<password>password</password>
<!-- sql to call when connection is created
<new-connection-sql>some arbitrary sql</new-connection-sql>
-->
<!-- sql to call on an existing pooled connection when it is obtained from pool
<check-valid-connection-sql>some arbitrary sql</check-valid-connection-sql>
-->
</local-tx-datasource>
</datasources>
And finally, you have to create a jboss-web.xml in your WEB-INF app directory as follows :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jboss-web>
<resource-ref>
<res-ref-name>jdbc/MyDSName</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<jndi-name>java:/PostgresDS</jndi-name>
</resource-ref>
</jboss-web>
Then , in order to get the DS object, you have this code (using JNDI) :
ds = (DataSource) initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/MyDSName");

Everything I told you is correct, but I don�t remember if it�s all you�ve got to set everything up or if there�s something missing... so... give it a try and if you have problems, let me know...
Best wishes,

Once you add the postgres datasource xml in your /deploy directory, jboss should load the datasource into a jndi name you can use in your ejb. There are many examples of how datasources should look like in $jboss_home/docs/examples/jca (if your using 3.2.2).
