Is it possible to change the Connection being used by a JDBC

Hello all,
Let me know if its at all possible to change the connection being used by a JDBC adapter service. I have a bunch of JDBC services and do not wish to recode them. I just want to use a new connection. The new database will have the tables etc being used by the JDBC adapter services.

If you are using IS 6.1 with ADK 6.1, there is a feature in the developer to change the connection alias of an adapter service.

Otherwise, with IS 6.0.1 or IS 6.1 without ADK 6.1, there is no wM supported solution if I am not wrong (have not seen or heard about it).
But here at STC, we developed a simple package that can do that and we have used it and it works. It goes through the node.ndf file of the adapter service, parses it, base64 decodes the adk info in it and changes the alias. Give me your email so I can send it to you if you want.


Great. Please send it at

webMethods supplies a service to do this:

I dont see the service on my IS. I see***** only.

Hi Riad,

would you be please so kind to post your solutiion for this to the shareware section of

This will help all of us, not only those who are reading this thread and requesting it from you.

BTW: The mentioned Service is only available for IS 6.1.
When using IS 6.0.1, you will probably check out Riads solution.


Please forward this package to

Many thanks,
Debbie service is available under WmART package but please keep in mind that this package WmART is shipped to customers as part of JDBC Adapter 6.0.3 version by webMethods. By just replacing the WmART package separately on top of JDBC Adapter 6.0.2 or 6.0.1 is not a good option. It is better to upgrade the JDBC Adapter to the latest version.


To clarify the availability of the service, it is available with the Integration Server version 6.1, not earlier versions. Additionally, the WmART package is delivered as part of the Integration Server, not part of the adapter, and versions of it cannot be swapped between different versions of the Integration Server. So to get access to the service, you will need to upgrade the server to version 6.1, not the adapter.

We have another issue in the JDBC adapter services where the database schema names needs to be changed in production environment. Right now we are doing this manually after importing into production by recoding the service which a risky way of doing.
If this package can be enhanced to change service schemas also which will be very helpful for the webmethods development community.

I believe this option is also available in JDBC Adapter 6.0.3 FP1.

Could you please send me the same package at


Would you mind sending the package to too? Thanks a lot.
