Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1934) Reference Manual updates - J2EE Compliance: Java Transaction API and javax.sql Extensions

There is nothing magic about Derby's implementation of a DataSource.

If i could suggest making a quick scan of DataSource overview in the 
JDBC spec as this will give you an overview of how a DataSource is used 
in conjunction with JNDI.

The page that has this information, although you have to browse to the section called JDBC
