We are migrating our EAR’s from Websphere 4 to Websphere 6. We are planning to build a single set of EAR files that can be deployed to either WAS4 or WAS6
In order to make this work, we need to keep all of the deployment descriptors compliant with J2EE 1.2
When we deploy a J2EE 1.2 EAR in the Websphere 6 environment, the EAR is unable to connect to any V6 DataSources.
Websphere 6 does not allow J2EE 1.2 EAR’s to use V6 DataSources. It appears that only V4 DataSources are allowed for J2EE 1.2 applications.
Is there a way to override this? We would like to be able have the J2EE 1.2 application utilize V6 (not V4) DataSource’s.
Thanks in advance.
