It is easy to configure JBoss to work with Mimer SQL.
If you are using JBoss 3.2.3 or later all required files are installed with JBoss. Simply edit jboss_home/examples/jca/mimer-ds.xml and/or jboss_home/examples/jca/mimer-xa-ds.xml and copy them to your deploy directory, for example jboss_home/server/default/deploy.
If you are using an older version of JBoss, use the following configuration files predefined for Mimer SQL:
Please, see the readme file for details.
Basically, enter your database url, database ident and database password in mimersql-ds.xml and copy the file to jboss_home/server/configuration_name/deploy/ (for example /opt/jboss/server/default/deploy). If you want to use XA, do the same with mimersql-xa-ds.xml.
The files standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml and standardjaws.xml are used to instruct JBoss how the database works, e.g. which datatypes to use. The standard files above, with additions for Mimer SQL, are complete and can be used as is - copy them into jboss_home/server/configuration_name/config/. On the other hand, if you want to keep your existing files, just copy-paste the Mimer SQL parts into your environment.
The Mimer JDBC Driver need to be in the classpath of the JVM.
