Using the same JNDI-Name for different applications

Sometimes its nessesary to install the same application twice on one application server cell (or even node).
If this applications are using the same JNDI-Name (like jdbc/LiferayPool) but another Database, you can separate these resource-declarations with the Scope-option in WebSphere.

Problem description:

The Applications are installed on different application servers (JVMs).

1. Go to Resources > JDBC > Data sources
2. Select the application server (JVM) on which for the jdbc-resource corresponding application is installed.

3. Click New to create the JDBC-Resource under this Scope.

4. Repeat this step for the other JDBC-Resource (select the application server of the other application).

Result description

This option is useful for applications like Liferay.
