Subject Re: How to Access Geronimo Resources from a Web Application?
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2006 06:40:43 GMT
This won't quite work.  There's no guarantee that a JCA 1.5 adapter  
with a ResourceAdapter is going to have any outbound connectors at  
all, nor will this pick up any jca 1.0 adapters without a  

What you want is to use ConnectionFactorySource as the interface in  
your query.

ConnectionFactorySource isn't the connection factory itself, you have  
to call the oddly named method $getResource().  This could be a  
datasource, a jms ConnectionFactory, or just about anything else, so  
you have to test the results to see if its something you want.

Kernel kernel = KernelRegistry.getSingleKernel();
Collection cfss = kernel.listGBeans(new AbstractNameQuery 
Collection datasources = new ArrayList();
for (Iterator i = cfss.iterator(); i.hasNext(); ) {
     Object cf = kernel.invoke((AbstractName),  
"$getResource", new Object[] {}, new String[]{});  //this might not  
be the right signature for the invoke method-- this is from memory
    if (cf instanceof DataSource) {

Hope this helps
