#9 Bug 664096 Fix : unable to get JDBC connection in JBoss

Brian Smith

In some circumstances, the userName and password for
the JDBC connection are not known to the application
that invokes
(e.g. a J2EE app using JBoss' connection pools). The
userName and password are never specified.

Some implementations of DataSource (noteably the one in
JBoss 2.4.3) do not treat
DataSource.getConnection(null, null) the same as
DataSource.getConnection(), which should use the
credentials specified in the pool configuration. The
end result is that the database refuses the logon
unless the userName and password are explicitly
supplied by the application to

This patch tests for a null userName and explicitly
calls the appropriate DataSource.getConnection method.

    That was supposed to read JBoss > 2.4.3
