#7 JDBCDataSourceLoader fix

v2.2 (stable)

Here are two responses to a problem that I posted to
JBoss-user regarding a NullPointerException when
trying to create a JDBCDataSource.

From Toby Allsopp [toby.allsopp@peace.com]
It seems that JDBCDataSourceLoader is borked.
Can you please try adding the initialisation of source
to the no args constructor and see if that works?
If that fixes it, please post a patch in the
SourceForge patch tracker and I'll commit it.
Thanks for the report,

From Tim Taylor [tttaylor@cssassociates.com]
I just tried initializing the source variable in the
no-args constructor. It works, but you also have to
add a setPoolName/getPoolName pair to
JDBCDataSourceLoader and JDBCDataSourceLoaderMBean.
After that, JDBCDataSourceLoader works just like
XADataSourceLoader from jboss.jcml. One minor
difference is that there is no DataSourceClass
attribute to set...

I made the above suggested changes along with a change
to getProperties() and I was able to define a
JDBCDataSource without errors. It was created and
bound to JNDI but I couldn't test it with my
application because I am having trouble getting the
latest jboss build to work with the latest tomcat 4.0

See attached file for the patch of
JDBCDataSourceLoader.java and

See "need JDBCDataSourceLoader example" thread in
