Create Proxy data sources

A Proxy data source is used to provide access to other data sources in your environment. See Using Proxy Data Sources.

To create a Proxy data source:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the Domain Structure tree, expand Services, then select Data Sources.
  3. On the Summary of Data Sources page, click New and select Proxy Data Source.
  4. On the Proxy Data Sources Properties page, enter or select the following information:

    Name - Enter a name for this JDBC data source. This name is used in the configuration file (config.xml) and throughout the Administration Console whenever referring to this data source.

    Scope - Specifies if the data source is accessible within the domain, a partition, or a resource group template.

    JNDI Name - Enter the JNDI path to where this JDBC data source will be bound. Applications look up the data source on the JNDI tree by this name when reserving a connection.

    Switchng Properties - Enter any switching properties.

    Switchng Callback - Enter the name of the PROXY switching callback class.

  5. Click Next to continue.
  6. On the Select Targets page, select the servers or clusters on which you want to deploy the data source.
  7. Click Finish to save the Proxy data source configuration and deploy the data source to the targets that you selected.
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
