Subject Dynamically adding a resource to a context
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 20:22:15 GMT
Hi all,
I'm honestly not positive that what I want to do is a good idea but the 
basic concept is that I want to dynamically add a Resource (a JNDI JDBC 
DataSource) to a Context.  The idea is that I will be dynamically 
creating databases for new users and want to have a database connection 
pool for each user.

I've been able to simply hand modify 
${catalina.home}/conf/Catalina/localhost/contextname.xml and seen that I 
can now access the new DataSource.  What I'm looking for is a 
programmatic way to do the same thing, short of parsing and rewriting 
the XML myself.  I've dug though the MBean classes and am honestly a bit 

Is there something that I'm missing?  This is Tomcat 6.0.18 under Linux 
and/or Windows.

Thanks for any help.
