Multiple datasource JIRA

In JIRA 5, I am using db-config.xml to define JIRA data source. I have a service which connects to an external database.

JIRA 4.3, I was using server.xml to define both data source.

How can i define data source for external database in JIRA 5?

You can still define it in the server.xml.

Hi Jobin, Do I need to change entityengine.xml? I am using JIRA 6.1.3. I actually changed both entityengine.xml and server.xml and still got the following error. [ofbiz.core.entity.ConnectionFactory] ******* ERROR: No database connection found for helperName "JIRAUAT" When getting a connection using con = org.ofbiz.core.entity.ConnectionFactory.getConnection("JIRAUAT"); Thansk for your help!
