Deploying the resource adaptor involves setting up a build environment, DU, and SLEE Library JARs.
The download package includes:
du/ - deployable units lib/ - compilation dependencies docs/ - documentation examples/ - an example service etc/ - library JAR descriptors and library-ref XML fragments createradu.macro.xml - a reusable Ant macrodef for assembling an RA DU build.xml - build files build.properties - build properties
build.properties must be edited to provide values for the properties specific to the local environment. The
required properties are marked at the top of the file.
A deployable unit for the resource adaptor implementation is not included pre-assembled in the distribution. This is
resource-adaptor-jar.xml descriptor within the component JAR must be updated to reference the appropriate
library JARs via
<library-ref> elements before the DU can be deployed.
build.xml contains targets (
postgresql) to build the database-specific
deployable units. They use the
<createradu> macro to update the
resource-adaptor-jar.xml descriptor within the
dbquery-ra-x.y.z.jar, and then create
create-dbquery-ra macro in
build.xml creates a DU using the supplied library-ref fragments.
The resource adaptor should work with any JDBC DataSource that uses standard configuration methods. A SLEE Library JAR must be created for the driver and the resource adaptor’s deployment descriptor updated to reference that library. The package contains Ant build scripts to perform this task.
The resource adaptor has been tested with recent versions of these databases:
Database JDBC drivers are not distributed with this package. The libraries will be built when the targets mentioned
above are run (
postgresql). The JDBC driver locations must be specified by
the properties at the top of
build.properties. If the JDBC driver is distributed as a native library, then the
path to the driver must be specified in the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
