Setting up Appeon Server data sources

The data source for the Web application and the mobile application is the counterpart to the transaction object in the target PowerBuilder application. The transaction properties in the target PowerBuilder application contain database connection parameters, which should be correspondingly configured in data sources.

Appeon Web applications and Appeon mobile applications rely on Appeon Server JDBC data sources to interact with the database servers. When creating a JDBC data source, you can use different JDBC drivers. However, Appeon has some recommendations on which JDBC driver is to be used for certain types of databases.

This section gives detailed instructions on configuring data sources in EAServer 6.x, WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss, NetWeaver Application Server, and JEUS. If you have problems creating JDBC data sources, refer to the documentations from the database/JDBC driver vendor or SAP EAServer, SAP NetWeaver, Oracle WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, JBoss and TmaxSoft JEUS.
