You can configure data sources from within your test case (avoiding the
need for an
openejb.xml entirely) like so:
Properties p = new Properties(); p.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.apache.openejb.core.LocalInitialContextFactory"); p.put("myDataSource", "new://Resource?type=DataSource"); p.put("myDataSource.JdbcDriver", "org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver"); p.put("myDataSource.JdbcUrl", "jdbc:derby:derbyDB;create=true"); p.put("myDataSource.JtaManaged", "true"); Context context = new InitialContext(p);
See Embedded Configuration for details on properties and overrides.
See Containers and Resources for a full list of supported Resource types and their properties.
When configuring DataSources to be used by persistence.xml files, the
DataSource supplied for
<jta-data-source> is typically identical to the
<non-jta-data-source>, but with the
JtaManaged property set differently.
Keeping with our philosophy to free you up from redundant configuration, we
will happily auto-create a missing jta-data-source or non-jta-data-source
based upon the supplied DataSource.
In the example above, a new DataSource would be generated as an exact copy
but with the name "myDataSourceUnmanaged" and its
JtaManaged flag set to
false. If the supplied DataSource was not
JtaManaged, then the generated
DataSource would be called "myDataSourceJta" and have its
When relying on this functionality it is not necessary to specify the name
of the generated DataSource in the
