How are you filtering the datasources.xconf file?

Are you substituting the dburl with a property?

Maven allows you to inherit project descriptors, and allows you to
use whatever plugins you want to do your job.  I don't have all the
details to answer your questions, but some of this might be able to
be addressed via Jelly.  However, with that solution, many people are
polarized with there views.

I have heard everything from "Jelly Rocks!" to "The road to ANT hell
is paved with Jelly".  Jelly being the project over at Jakarta Commons.
