hi guys

I am using DAO with hibernate in my persistance layer.

but my requirment is such that inside the DAO implimentation class i want to make use of two datasources.

thi is my DAO

public class TestDaoImpl implements TestDao

public TestReturnVO insertInfo(TestVO testVO)

System.out.println("INSERT INFO INTO TABLE1 OF 'DATABASE1' using Hiberante datasource ");
return TRVO;

public TestReturnVO retrieveInfo(TestVO testVO)

System.out.println("Retrieve INFO FROM TABLE1 OF 'DATABASE2' Using Hiberante datasource");
return TRVO;


Any idea how i should go about implimenting the above scenario? Do i use abstract factory design pattern in my DAO to connect to Multiple databases?

How should i change the hibernate configuration file so that it can use two datasources instead of one?

any implimentation code would be greatly appreciated

Hibernate works from a SessionFactory, and a SessionFactory is associated with one DataSource. If you need to use two, you need two SessionFactories. The logic of which to open a session in for a particular object will need to be done manually in your DAO.
