Connecting CrowdID to a Database
CrowdID is a free add-on that ships with Crowd versions 1.1 and later.
By default, CrowdID in the Crowd distribution (not EAR-WAR) is shipped preconfigured with HSQL. This is fine for evaluation purposes, but for production installations, you should connect CrowdID to an enterprise database. This also lets you take advantage of existing database backup and recovery procedures.
The following instructions will allow you to configure CrowdID to an external database:
- HSQLDB for CrowdID
- MS SQL Server for CrowdID
- MySQL for CrowdID
- Oracle for CrowdID
- PostgreSQL for CrowdID
CrowdID in the Crowd distribution (not EAR-WAR) includes the Apache Tomcat application server and an in-memory HSQL database engine. This JNDI reference (
CrowdIDDS) can be adjusted to use your custom database and driver by editing the
crowd.xml deployment description.
