Accessing WebLogic Server JDBC DataSource from Java in JSF

Frank Nimphius
Master Principal Product Manager

There may be a requirement
for you to access a JDBC data source defined on the WebLogic Server (for
example to query a database or database schema other than the one the application's
business service is connected with.

To access the JDBC DataSource,
for example from a managed bean in JSF, you code like the following:

connection = null;

try {
javax.naming.Context initialContext = new javax.naming.InitialContext();
  javax.sql.DataSource dataSource =

  connection = dataSource.getConnection();

 } catch(Exception e){
      //or handle more gracefully

the example above, the JDBC DataSource is defined in WLS as "hrconnDS"
