Jazz.war in WebSphere Application Server ?

Can we start testing jazz.war in our WebSphere and report any issue on
Jazz.net or should we wait because we never tested it ?

While I can't provide the 'official' answer about current support for
Jazz on Websphere, I have tested it in the past (with success) and I'd
be very interested in any problems that you find while testing it.
Reporting bugs through Jazz.net is the right approach; Make sure to
include that you are using WAS in the bug =).

hey Matt,
Worked fine as soon as I noticed it was trying to access my derby under C:
\Derby :) I imported the REPOSITORY shcema... et voila :)

Are we using the defaultDataSource to access the database ?

I've documented my experience installing Jazz on WAS at

Thanks for those instructions Anthony!

Since you don't mention setting up a data source, can I conclude that Jazz doesn't use WebSphere data sources, but rather just a simple JDBC connection?

In the way that I have setup Jazz (as documented in the instructions linked in the previous post), a WebSphere data source is not used. However, there may be a way to get Jazz to use a data source. I didn't make much of an effort to get that working.

My main goal was just to get Jazz running with LDAP so our team could start using it with their regular intranet user ids. I went down two paths: 1) attempting to get Tomcat to authenticate against our LDAP and 2) attempting to get the Jazz war installed and running on a WAS server already configured to authenticate against our LDAP. The second path met success before the first so I stopped there.

But I'm guessing there probably is a way to get Jazz to use WAS data sources.

I have not found a way either. Jazz found my 'default datasource'.
Mind you,I have not played with 'teamserver.properties' which seems to set
up the database location and driver...

reading 'https://jazz.net/downloads/DownloadDocument.jsp?
href=betas/data/0.6M1/server-install/db2setup.html"
It seems Jazz is using the database pool instead of the app server pool

It should be possible to use J2EE datasources with Jazz by setting the following properties in teamserver.properties:

# J2EE database connection example
db.type = J2EE
db.j2ee.dataSource = /jdbc/jazz

Make sure that no other 'db.type' lines are uncommented in the file.
