Please help me, I am a newbie…..

I have a class which is looking for JNDI in Jboss, I have deployed the jar file for this project in Jboss deploy directory. 
Can any one explain me, where should I place my datasource xml file, i.e should I place it in the deploy directory itself? 
What should I name the XML files? 
Upon seeing the files I thought I should name them as 
proxy-ds.xml, proxy-backup-ds.xml, web-ds.xml.
Am I right? Or should I name it differently?


public enum ProxyDbMode {PRIMARY, BACKUP};
private ProxyDbMode proxyMode = ProxyDbMode.PRIMARY;

private Connection getProxyDbConnection() throws ErpProxyDaoException, SQLException {
		Connection con;
		if (this.proxyMode != ProxyDbMode.PRIMARY) {
			con = this.connectToDatabase("proxy");
			ErpProxyProgressDAO.logger.info("Connected to proxy primary");
		else {
			con = this.connectToDatabase("proxy-backup");
			ErpProxyProgressDAO.logger.info("Connected to proxy backup");
		return con;

	private Connection getQadWebDbConnection() throws ErpProxyDaoException, SQLException {
		Connection con = this.connectToDatabase("web");
		ErpProxyProgressDAO.logger.info("Connected to web db");
		return con;

	private Connection connectToDatabase(String name) throws ErpProxyDaoException, SQLException{
		Context ctx = null;
		DataSource ds = null;
			ctx = new InitialContext();
			ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("java:" + name + "-ds");
		}catch(Exception e){
			throw new ErpProxyDaoException("to throw NamingException -- ", e);

		return ds.getConnection();
And how should I make sure that the connection closes, when  ever I call this Method?

Thanks for taking time and looking at my question. Please respond......
