JDBC provider settings

Use this page to modify the settings for a JDBC provider.

To view this administrative console page, click Resources > JDBC > JDBC providers > JDBC_provider .

If you use this page to modify the class path or native library path of an existing JDBC provider: After you apply and save the new settings, restart every application server within the scope of that JDBC provider for the new configuration to work. Otherwise, you receive a data source failure message.


Scope

Scope of the JDBC provider; data sources that are created with this JDBC provider inherit this scope.


Name

Name of the resource provider.

Information Value
Data type String


Description

Text description for the resource provider.

Information Value
Data type String


Class path

List of paths or JAR file names which together form the location for the resource provider classes.

For example:

Class path entries are separated by using the ENTER key and must not contain path separator characters (such as ';' or ':'). Class paths contain variable (symbolic) names which you can substitute using a variable map. Check the driver installation notes for the specific required JAR file names.

Information Value
Data type String


Native Library Path

List of paths that forms the location for the resource provider native libraries.

Native path entries are separated by using the ENTER key and must not contain path separator characters (such as ';' or ':'). Native paths can contain variable (symbolic) names which you can substitute using a variable map.

Information Value
Data type String


Isolate this resource provider

Specifies that this resource provider will be loaded in its own class loader. This allows different versions or implementations of the same resource provider to be loaded in the same Java Virtual Machine. Give each version of the resource provider a unique class path that is appropriate for that version or implementation. Be aware of the following:


Implementation class name

Java class name of the JDBC driver implementation.

This class is available in the driver file mentioned in the class path description above.

For example, com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XADataSource for distributed and z/OS operating systems.

If you modify the implementation class name of the JDBC provider after we have created the provider, you might disconnect the provider from the template used to create it. As a result, data sources created from this JDBC provider do not have an associated template; manually configure a working data source through setting custom properties.

Information Value
