There are two types of configuration for database connectors:
- A JDBC connector is a point-to-point connection configured with information to access the database directly.
- A datasource connector is a connection to a datasource that is an intermediate point between the user (the Bonita process) and the database. The advantage of using a datasource is that it can use a connection pool. The details of how the datasource retrieves information and the database it uses are hidden from the connector.
