Installed applications that must interact with relational databases use JDBC providers for data access. Together, the JDBC provider and data source objects are functionally equivalent to the J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) connection factory (which provides access to non-relational databases).
The WAS prerequisite Web site has a current list of supported providers. See Hardware and software requirements for more information. For detailed descriptions of the providers, including the supported data source classes and their required properties, refer to Vendor-specific data sources minimum required settings .
