Create the XA Data Sources

During installation, one JDBC XA data source named OraDS is created based on the values in the file. However, since you need to create a multi data source named OraDS—and

because you cannot have a duplicate named in a data source and a multi-data source—you will

begin the connection tasks by deleting the OraDS data source.

X To create the XA data sources


In the WebLogic Administration Console under Domain Structure, expand Services

expand JDBC, and select Data Sources. The Summary of JDBC Data Sources screen

(Figure 6) appears.
