16.2.2. Configuring JDBC DataSources

Datasources correspond to the simplified JCA Datasource configuration specifications.
Datasources need to reside in the <JBOSS_HOME>/server/<PROFILE>/deploy directory, alongside other deployable applications and resources. The files use a standard naming scheme of DBNAME-ds.xml.
Example datasources for all certified databases are located in the <JBOSS_HOME>/docs/examples/jca directory. Edit the datasource that corresponds to your database, and copy it to the deploy/ directory before restarting the application server.
See Chapter 17, Datasource Configuration for information on configuring datasources. As a minimum, you will need to change the connection-url , user-name , and password to correspond to your database of choice.
