A Foreign Connection Factory contains the JNDI name of the connection factory in the remote JNDI provider, the JNDI name that the connection factory is mapped to in the local WebLogic Server JNDI tree, and an optional user name and password. The foreign connection factory creates non-replicated JNDI objects on each WebLogic Server instance that the parent foreign server is targeted to. (To create the JNDI object on every node in a cluster, target the foreign server to the cluster.)
Note: Once you create a foreign connection factory, you cannot rename it. Instead, you must delete it and create another one that uses the new name.
For more information about these fields, refer to Configuration Options.
Note: The User Name and
Password are only used when the foreign
factory is used inside a
resource-reference in an
EJB or a servlet, and when the
Container mode of
authentication is used.
