Pinned topic BIRT and JNDI ?

‏2013-03-18T15:51:05Z |
Is there an expert here who can offer up a "how to" on getting BIRT to use a JNDI resource defined in TOMCAT?

We use 2 Tomcat servers running on the iSeries. Each Tomcat instance is assigned the role of a test and production server. When the EGL app is deployed it uses the JNDI definitions as the basis for making a connection. The benefit being pursued here is that the SQL statements are not qualified with a library and the connection obtains either the test or production libraries. We need the same capability for the BIRT reports and being able to use the JNDI resource would be perfect. I've done the research and come up with zilch. Much of it seems to be oriented to Java which uses the context to obtain the lookup.

Need a little help here, please.

Thanks!

    No idea if this helps you any further, just wanted to point you to an old post: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=337859&tstart=525

    Thanks, Ortwin, but that post is predominately on the topic of deploying a BIRT report to WAS 6.1. and doesn't speak to the details of getting a BIRT report design to use a JNDI connection resource already established and used by the EGL project running on Tomcat.

    I forget to add that I appreciate your willingness to help. If you have any other ideas I am certainly interested in learning about them. Thanks again.
