Thoughts on supporting JNDI based Oracle file system/persistence manager implementations
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: JCR-942
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-942
             Project: Jackrabbit
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 1.3
         Environment: Oracle 10g
            Reporter: Hemanta Gupta
            Priority: Minor


This may not be relevant for too many people, but I faced a situation where I couldn't use
the stock Oracle file system and persistence manager implementations since we couldn't place
the clear text DB password in repository.xml (for security reasons).

I tried adapting the classes to use a data-source instead, but this didn't work out immediately
because of the Oracle specific blob handling being performed by these classes. They expect
the connection to be the original native connection returned by the driver, so in the case
of wrapped connections returned by managed data-sources, a ClassCastException is thrown by
oracle.sql.BLOB.createTemporary().

I finally got things working thanks to the fact that both application servers we support (JBoss
and WebLogic) allow extraction of the native connection from a wrapped managed connection.
Spring's NativeJdbcExtractor interface proved very helpful here; I simply used the right implementation
for extracting the native connection and using it wherever I thought it was required (modified
code to be attached later).

So to sum up, would it be possible for JR to provide this kind of functionality out-of-the-box?
To be specific, could you provide JNDI based Oracle file system and persistence manager implementations
where we can plug in some kind of native connection extractor, and have the implementations
internally use the native connection for Oracle specific stuff?
