How to add a JDBC driver

This procedure assumes you are creating a new JDBC data source, and you need to install a new driver because the driver that your database requires is not available in the list of drivers.

Figure 2-4 New JDBC Data Source Path

On Manage JDBC Drivers, shown in Figure 2‑5, choose Add to install the JAR file that contains the driver.

Figure 2-5 Managing JDBC drivers

Figure 2‑5
Manage JDBC Drivers shows the new JAR file. BIRT Report Designer copies the JAR file to the Eclipse JDBC directory.

Figure 2-6 Viewing JDBC driver classes

Figure 2-7 Editing a JDBC driver URL template

In URL Template, type the syntax suggestion that appears for this driver in Database URL on New JDBC Data Source Profile.
