context XML : how to add Resource values? [message #215477] Mon, 16 June 2008 11:11 Go to next message

Hello all,

I've been driven mad by this problem, and I'm hoping someone here can help
me out please.

I've started on a project thats been in existence for many years.
Hence I'm stuck with Tomcat 5.0.28.
I've managed to get it to build etc via linking in files/directorys.

My problem is this...

When eclipse publishses to Tomcat 5.0.28 it creates its own app context
file & I want (need) to insert Resource / ResourceParams tags.

but eclipse generates this file and so doesn't contain what I want.

I can see the file deployed at this location...
C:\tools\workspaceTip\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.ser ver.core\tmp1\conf\Catalina\localhost\star.xml

The tags I want to add are for creating a datasource connection.

I've created the 'star' context via a "Tomcat 5.0.28" server & its
"modules" tab.


Any advice would be great!

Thanks for that Larry.

I'm still stuck though.

I have my web module defined for Tomcat 5.0.28 &
"publish module contexts to separate XML files" selected.

But I still can't see how to put extra stuff in
/conf/Catalina/localhost/app.xml

I've tried adding my XML below to the server.xml, but that doesn't seem to
work.
(the xml gets published, but doesn't work)

XML
<Resource name="jdbc/isi" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>
<ResourceParams name="jdbc/isi">
<parameter>
<name>driverClassName</name>
<value>oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver</value>
</parameter>
...snip...

Does anyone has any ideas?

Thanks
Jeff
