We are wanting to connect to an external Database e.g. Oracle using the SQL Adapter in the Mobile Foundation service (not as the repository for the Mobile Foundation configuration).
And from that link:
dataSourceJNDIName: Optional. Connect to the data source by using the JNDI name of a data source that is provided by the application server. The adapter takes the connection from the server connection pool that is associated with the JNDI name. Application servers provide a way to configure data sources. For more information, see Installing MobileFirst Server to an application server. For example:
During our implementation of the mobile application, we encountered SQL Adapter connectivity problems resulting in poor user experience and quality of service. We want to configure the SQL connection using a connection pool so we have greater control over the connection e.g. concurrency and timeouts.
