Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3878) Unable to deploy Postgres Datasource from console dialog "Database Pools" because of missing jar files in jar selection listbox.
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 14:00:50 GMT


Ralf Baumhof commented on GERONIMO-3878:

Yes, that's right. It works if you donwload the driver directly. The dialog first does not
work, if you try a test, it fails. But after this first failure, the dialog is ok. It always
comes up with the corret postgres specific settings, and more over, the datasource is ok.
The application works. But i'am still confused because of the following:

- Why this strange behaviour - only for Postgres? With geronimo 2.0.2 you could download the
driver separately, and then use the common libs dialog (now called repository) to deploy it.
Then you will see it in the jars  listbox. This still works - if you use another database
type (like DB2). 

- This workaround is not suitable for a production system. In production we "NEVER" have a
internet connection. People in the production system are used to get a jar, and then they
deploy it using the dialoge. So, i could use the dialog of an other system with internet connection
to create a plan and advice production to deploy the plan. But this will probably result in
editing and changing the plan to the preferences of production systems.  And this will result
in errors.

> Trying to deploy a datasource with console dialog "Database Pools". 
>  - Select link "Console Navigation/Services/Database Pools".
>  - Select link "Using the geronimo database pool wizard".
>  - Enter some database name like for instance "vesuv" and select as Database Type: "PostgreSQL
XA" or "PostgreSQL local".
>  - Click the Next button.
>  - Now, on the page where you specify the properties of the database pool, the listbox
where you can select the driver jar  is empty. If you choose another database type (on the
previous dialog page), the list is filled with all entries from repository. The same steps
have been made with Geronimo 2.02. There the database could be deployed.
