Injecting a DataSourcePool Service into an Adobe Experience Manager OSGi bundle

This development article discusses how to inject a DataSourcePool service into an OSGi component. By injecting a DataSourcePool, your OSGi bundle can connect to a relational database such as MySQL. You configure a DataSourcePool using Adobe Experience Manager.

For information about configuring a DataSourcePool, see http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/developing/jdbc.html.

Note: You can create an OSGi bundle that is able to connect to a relational database without using a DataSourcePool. In this situation, you have to write a Java class that uses the JDBC API to connect to the database.
