Cannot retrieve the HANA Catalog Name

Hi all,

I have a Java program that has to connect to a HANA database via JDBC to do some CRUD operations.

When I create the JDBC connection I try to retrieve the Catalog Name of the HANA db, but it is null.

These are the steps that I do:

java.sql.Connection conn = getConnection(); // get the connection from the Context

String catalogName = conn.getCatalog();

catalogName is null!

I am using Java 1.6 and the application runs on JBoss 7.


can anyone help me?
