     This Article i describe how to create Datasource in JBoss AS 7. 

If you are using the 1.6 JVM, then you should Download *JDBC4 postgresql Driver.*

* *Install the JDBC4 postgresql Driver as a JBoss 7 deployment*

* *After downloading postgressql driver jar file. just move the* *postgressql driver jar file into* *Jboss 7 installation directory under standalone/deployments (*jboss-as-web-7.0.0.Final/standalone/deployments*).*

finally click Done.

h3. Testing the Postgressql Datasource 
Using the test client you may now verify the proper installation of your datasource. 

When testing a newly configured datasource we suggest using some very basic JDBC client code embedded in a JSP page  client.jsp


        DataSource ds = null;
        Connection con = null;
        Statement stmt = null;
        InitialContext ic;
        try {
            ic = new InitialContext();
            ds = (DataSource) ic.lookup("java:/SampleDS");

            con = ds.getConnection();
            stmt = con.createStatement();

            ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from login");
            while (rs.next()) {
                out.println("<br> " + rs.getString("username") + " | "
                        + rs.getString("password"));
        } catch (Exception e) {
            out.println("Exception thrown ");
        } finally {
            if (con != null) {
