How to manage multiple versions of JDBC drivers in a JBoss domain

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • For our EAP5 instances, by specifying the Oracle driver on the class path we have the capability to run a different Oracle driver version per instance. While we typically do not do this, with running 100+ JVMs per server this provides us the flexibility to roll back to the older Oracle driver version if an upgrade to the Oracle driver causes problems for a specific JVM instance. How would we go about running one version of the Oracle driver version on one instance and a different Oracle driver version on another?
