How do I change the database for executeSqlStatement


Not applicable

I am trying to use an executeSqlStatement in my process flow, which saves my submitted forms data by inserting it into a database.

My question is, how can i change the database that workbench is pointed at from adobe, to my own DB, or if it is possible at all?

I have tried changing the database pointers in adobe-ds.xml and mysql-ds.xml, but that has only succeeded in breaking my livecycle workbench:/

I have had no luck trying to find a solution, so some clarification would be greatly appreciated!

The executeSqlStatement uses the data source you specify in the data source name. The format is java:/datasource_name.

Now how to setup that data source depends on the application server you are using.

In JBoss, like you mentioned, you need to configure a *-ds.xml file to contain the data source information. You can edit one that already exists or create a new file as long as the file name ends with -ds.xml.

Don't change the data source that are alreay setup. Just add new ones.

At this point this is strictly JBoss configuration. It has nothing to do with LiveCycle.
