Thanks for the links. Right now we are using commons-dbcp and that has
been working fine for over 3 years.
Based on our websphere admin's suggestion, we are trying to get rid of
Commons datasource and use WAS datasource instead.
I too am eager to move away from WAS 5.x but I kind of don't get
irritated remembering that I know many people who are still on WAS 4 :(

Is it possible to connect to a datasource (on i-series WAS 5.x) from

Hi Raj,

Normally you'd need to use J2EE client jars and set up, but see:

App-Managed JDBC DataSources with commons-dbcp

javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: getting JNDI to work (with mention

Naming and Directory (JNDI) - WebSphere JNDI Standalone client

You're still at WAS 5? I'm irritated at a client stuck on WAS 6.0.
