Hi all,

I am trying to migrate my application from weblogic to websphere. I have deployed the war file in websphere console and its deployed successfully. In my application the database driver and dburl are configured to weblogic specific. They are defined in weblogic web.xml. I am using the same web.xml for the websphere also.

dbdriver: weblogic.jdbc.pool.Driver
dburl: jdbc:weblogic ool:extranetPool.

I am trying to create the jdbc connection pools and data source in websphere console. I am using Oracle jdbc drivers for websphere. I am confused of the drivers used in web.xml which are weblogic specific. Can anyone tell me what connection pools and datasource paths that I have to create for my application. I am also thinking that I should include the jar file corresponding to this drivers in web-inf directory.Can anyone comment on this post.

Thanks for your patience and valuable time.

You problably will get better answers under websphere topic.

About your problem, yes you'll have to get driver .jar files and set the server classpath to have access to this libraries. This can be done using a startup parameter, loading a library using websphere console or setting the classpath for libraries on console. After that you'll need to read the choosen driver documentation where you'll get the correct driver class to use and also the correct url pattern as these have driver proprietary format.
