Using Connection Pooling : Using a DataDirect Connection Pool : Creating a Driver DataSource Object

Creating a Driver DataSource Object

The following Java code example creates a DataDirect Cloud Driver for JDBC DataSource object and registers it with a JNDI naming service.
Note: The DataSource class implements the ConnectionPoolDataSource interface for pooling in addition to the DataSource interface for non-pooling.
// This code creates a DataDirect Cloud Driver for JDBC data source and
// registers it to a JNDI naming service.
// This data source registers its name as <jdbc/CloudSparky>.
// NOTE: To connect using a data source, the driver needs to access a
// JNDI data store to persist the data source information.
// To download the JNDI File System Service Provider, go to:
// Make sure that the fscontext.jar and providerutil.jar files from the
// download are on your classpath.

// From DataDirect Cloud Driver for JDBC:
