Subject RE: Lookup to datasource to get DB url
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2008 15:23:03 GMT
Hi Alex,

Thanks for your answer.

However my main question is "How to do a lookup of a data  source" that
contains the real url parameter.
In my case I can NOT allow JackRabbit to use the url in repository.xml
because I do not know the real url when I package the product.

          <param name="driver" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/>
          <param name="url"
          <param name="user" value="root"/>
          <param name="password" value="mysql"/>
          <param name="schemaObjectPrefix" value="con_"/>

I need JackRabbit to do a lookup to a data source (mysql-ds.xml) when
JackRabbit is deployed on Jboss.
Any idea hw to do that?

Hi Antonio!

You can specify a JNDI data source in the url parameter, but that is
only available for DB persistence managers. See


The usage of a DbFileSystem is not required if you use a DB persistence
manager. It only stores the workspace.xml config file and the lucene
indexes, which need random access anyway, which you typically don't have
with data stored in a database. The "real" data is stored via the
persistence manager. Hence the recommended configuration is the
combination of a org.apache.jackrabbit.core.fs.local.LocalFileSystem
(storing files in a normal file system) and a bundle db persistence
