Affects Version/s: 1.2
Fix Version/s: None
Operating System: Windows XP
Using DBCP 1.2.1, I cannot get a BasicDataSource to work when credentials are
not supplied. My application learns the username and password at runtime and
as a result has to use getConnection(String, String). The problem seems to
occur in the createDataSource() method.
If a username and password are not supplied with the data source, they get
logged as missing, which is fine, but in the absence of the username/password
upon creation of the ConnectionPoolFactory, it bombs upon validation. Since
createDataSource() is called without arguments regardless of the getConnection()
method that is called, validateConnectionFactory(PoolableConnectionFactory)
will always fail if the username and password are not supplied with the
original data source configuration.
My application runs outside of an application server. I am using Spring 1.0 and
have tried HSQL and MySQL JDBC drivers. I can reproduce this error.
