Do drivers in drivers tag get loaded?

Posted on

EAP 6.4 in Domain mode
In the domain.xml a profile is defined. Within the profile there is a section on datasources. Within the datasources there is a section for drivers. Do all he drivers listed in this section get loaded within the JVM if there is no datasource defined to use them? For example, if the datasource is DB2 and after the connection-url the driver tag specifies db2, but later on in the drivers tag other drivers are also listed do these drivers get loaded when the JVM is started?
