Database connection (databaseConnection)

This section describe the JDBC database connection settings.

Let's look at a sample:

<lsc>
  <connections>
    <databaseConnection>
      <name>jdbc-dst-conn</name>
      <url>jdbc:postgresql://127.0.0.1:5432/lsc</url>
      <username>lsc</username>
      <password>lsc</password>
      <driver>org.postgresql.Driver</driver>
    </databaseConnection>
  </connections>
</lsc>

First to be able to reference the connection in the service, it's mandatory to give it a unique name element so that it can be referenced later in services (here jdbc-dst-conn).

  • url: mandatory, this field shall contain a valid JDBC connection that fits to your database
  • username: mandatory, this element shall contain the string that is used to identify against the database
  • password: mandatory, this is the clear text value that is used to connect to the directory
  • driver: mandatory, this is the JDBC class name that is the entry point to your database driver
