    Default Resource Injection

    I've recently discovered that instead of using

    Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
    DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/DBname", "username", "password");


    to connect to a database, you can use @Resource annotation to inject into a DataSource which will pool the connection rather than repeatedly open and close like the above, but the example I saw in a book only gave an example of:

    @Resource(name="jdbc/derby")
    private DataSource dataSource;

    and nothing else.

    My question is, how would I modify the first piece of code to work with the above @Resource style? I've tried playing around with it, but to no avail.

    Default Re: Resource Injection

    Been a while since I've used those sorts of annotations, but from memory I believe you need to specify the data source through some sort of xml file read by the container. Again, been a while so take that with a grain of salt. An alternative is to just create a manager class which encapsulates the connections - thus you need those two lines of code in one place in the project rather that needing to reuse them continually

    Yeah you were right, needed to create a persistence.xml file, which was easy enough to create via IDE wizard. Afterwards, all that was needed was to specify my database name in the annotation parameters.
