Setting up PowerServer 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.

The PowerServer Web application or the PowerServer mobile application relies on PowerServer JDBC data sources to interact with the database servers. When creating a JDBC data source, you can use different JDBC drivers. However, we have 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 WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss, and JEUS. If you have problems creating JDBC data sources, refer to the documentations from the database/JDBC driver vendor or Oracle WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, JBoss and TmaxSoft JEUS.
