Driver Definitions

Add, edit, or delete driver definitions for a specific database server. Connection profiles use driver definitions to establish database connections.

Driver details can include driver classes, URL, and JAR locations, but this is dependent on the requirements of each driver. You can define driver definitions before you create connection profiles, or when you create or edit a connection profile that requires a driver definition.
