Cannot find datasources after deploying prweb



After installing Pega 7.1.7 and starting it up the first time, there is an exception in the log saying ORA-0094: table or view does not exist. The environment is a Linux system with Tomcat7 and an Oracle DB, split schema configuration.

Steps to Reproduce

Install Pega as directed in document PRPC71_Install_TCORA.pdf

Root Cause

The root cause is because the database user given for jdbc/PegaRULES data source is rules user instead of data user.

From the PRPC documentation:
"The Datasource defined in the Context.xml has to be configured using the DATA schema userID and Password when using split schema." 


The explanation for this behavior is as follows:
Use a database user that has access to the data schema for jdbc/PegaRULES data source.
