Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-395) Need a public way to get connection to "SpatialMetadata" database
Date Tue, 06 Feb 2018 09:17:00 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-395:

             Summary: Need a public way to get connection to "SpatialMetadata" database
                 Key: SIS-395
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Metadata, Referencing
    Affects Versions: 0.8, 0.7, 0.6, 0.5
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
             Fix For: 1.0

There is currently no public API for getting the {{javax.sql.DataSource}} instance for Apache
SIS {{SpatialMetadata}} database. There is {{Initializer.getDataSource()}} method in the {{org.apache.sis.internal.metadata.sql}}
but this is non-public API, subject to change in any future SIS version and will not be accessible
in Java 9 (unless the restriction is bypassed by Java options on the command-line).

A standard way to provide {{DataSource}} in Java is with _Java Naming and Directory Interface_
(JNDI). However there is no JNDI environment by default in standard Java installation; JNDI
are rather provided by containers like Tomcat. We could provide our own micro-JNDI when no
environment is installed, but it may be disruptive as installing our own JNDI environment
would have a JVM-wide impact.
