Subject RE: <datasources> <j2ee ....... ?!
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2002 08:35:04 GMT
The first thing I tried the second I didn't. But I will look into it. 
I choose to use Access because it was the only database around that was
easily accessible. You see I am a student and I have to test the
possibilities of cocoon, what is its performance, how extensible is it
etc... one thing I was trying to test is how easily can I change the
Hypersonic database to another one. 

In the future I am going to connect a MySql database, but that takes some
extra time finding out how it works. If all goes well my company will use
Cocoon in future projects. At the moment it performs just great.... And I
agree Access is a lousy database, if you can call it a database :-)

try this:

<j2ee name="tryout">

The lookup maps to:


as per the J2EE specs.  If JBoss maps it somewhere else, it is an error.

Unrealated to this, I guarantee you will run into problems developing
against Access and then moving to a real database.  That is a 100%
guaranteed occurance.  I don't care if you are using ColdFusion, Java,
PHP, ASP, JSP, XSP, or whatever.  If you develop against Access thinking
you can move to a real database later you are fooling yourself.

Access requires you to write non-standard SQL statements, and allows you
to use unusual join patterns that won't work on real databases.  Not to
mention when the Access database reaches a certain size, it implodes on

I have run into Access related problems more than I care to admit.
Therefore I tend to stay away from it.
