Subject Re: Tomcat/Plesk datasource setup problems
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 12:01:59 GMT
Turns out datasource configuration is not possible
using Plesk as a shared tomcat server, the guys at
Plesk themselves told me.

That sucks. Means I have to create and manage the
Datasource in my app... minor refactoring, but not a
nice way of doing it. I also use hibernate and could
only get that working by defining its own connection
pooling. So now I have two pools :((
