a datasource in the IPT sense is twofold: first you need to configure  
your db connection, then you add any number of "datasources" which are  
SQL select statements basically creating a view on your data. You can  
configure several views as needed, most likely one for each darwin  
core extension you want to use. I have just tried this and saw that  
once you enter the db connection parameters you are redirected to a  
non existng page. The conenction is saved though, so you can try to  
setup the views.
