Access datasource in Quartz job running under Struts 1.x

I found a tutorial here http://www.mkyong.com/struts/struts-quartz-scheduler-integration-example/ on how to enable Quartz under Struts 1.x. It works like a charm with a few modifications for Quartz 2.1.

Now I get a "Hello World" in my logs.

However, I want to access the database inside my Job. How do I do that? How can I get hold of a Datasource object like I do inside an Action?

Are you talking about the Struts Datasource? That was retired in Struts 1.2.7. Since Struts is an implementation of the Front Controller Pattern, it didn't make sense to manage "back end" resources like database connections. There is no way to access a Struts Datasource outside the Struts web app.
Depending on your servlet container, you may be able to configure a database pool to be available to outside processes (Weblogic can, Tomcat cannot).
I am a man of mystery. Mostly because of this tiny ad:
