This plugin contains various datasources contributed by the core CakePHP team and the community. The datasources plugin is compatible with CakePHP 1.3+.

    var $mySource = array(
        'datasource' => 'Datasources.XmlrpcSource',


App::import('Datasource', 'Datasources.XmlrpcSource');

or, if using one of the pdo extended datasources,

    var $mySource = array(
        'driver' => 'Datasources.DboSqlite3',
