BI 4.1 SP2 Information Designer and PostgreSQL 9.3 connection - HOW?


Business Objects BI 4.1 on Windows 7, with IDT (Information Designer tool ) on client PC

I have spent couple of days in trying to sort out a Universe connection to a PostgreSQL 9.3 database.

I have followed the dataaccess document and lots of other examples but I seem to be getting the following error :

Java Class not found in classpath : org.postgresql.Driver

I have

1. Downloaded the .jar file from PostgreS and put it in the necessary path.

2. I have put in the <ClassPath> information in the .SBO file

3. I have tried this in the jdbc.sbo file and GreenPlum.sbo file but no luck

Any one out there can you advise on the steps

    Are you creating the connection in your local machine or on the server (Bottom of IDT screen where repositories shows)?
