JAVAMelody configurations - JNDI

I have configured Javamelody plugin in my JIRA 6.0.6 environment. According to documentation, it requires to change dbconfig.xml and server.xml files. It says it requires to use a jdbc datasource from jndi in order to monitor jdbc connections and SQL requests.

I'm using Oracle database and configuration line mentioned MYSQL.

Is it possible to configure this plug-in for Oracle db as well? If so what is the configuration?

Hi Heshan,

It should be possible with all JIRA supported databases. The jdbc URL for Oracle should be something like this:



Hi heshan,

you need to do following steps

1. Add the javamelody jar file to <atlassian-jira>/WEB-INF/lib

2. Shutdown the jira

3. In dbconfig.xml replace the

<jdbc-datasource> </jdbc-datasource>















4. Modify the below as per your jdbc-datasource and add

inside the <Context > </Context> tag of server.xml


<Resource name="jdbc/JiraDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"

url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@ No:JIRA"













validationQuery="select 1 from dual"



5. Now start the jira and do some search realted activity and monitor the jdbc connections and SQL requests.

This work for my jira.

can i do this with confluence as well? and if so what's the difference?
