Whose responsibility for the configuration sign-on info for resoruce manager? Yes, deployer if the <res-auth> is container, But if <res-auth> is application, that will be the bean provider's responsibility to configure the sign-on info programmatically. So both deployer and bean provider have the responsibility for the configuration sing-on info for resoruce manager. Any comments? [ May 06, 2004: Message edited by: Alibabra Sanjie ]
The Bean Provider uses the res-auth deployment descriptor element to indicate which of the two resource manager authentication approaches is used. If the value of the res-auth element is Container, the Deployer is responsible for configuring the sign-on information for the resource manager.
...But if <res-auth> is application, that will be the bean provider's responsibility to configure the sign-on info programmatically...
In this case, the bean provider still have to specify the sign-on info programmatically in the bean class using the resource manager API. Deployer CANNOT define the sign-on info if the <res-auth> is Application!
