How to Create JDBC Connection


I have read the help files but just wanted to check that I've not left anything out.

1. Created the database on SQL Server with stored procedures.

2. Created a JDBC connection on the portal.

3. User mapping set to admin, user

4. Create system alias, mapped system alias to my username and entered the username and password for the SQL database.

Connection test fails with error message :

Connection failed. Make sure user mapping is set correctly and all connection properties are correct.

Can anyone offer some advice ?

    Hi Sue, the tests should pass...

    make sure you are seting correctly the connection properties:

    1: Connection URL: jdbc:sap:sqlserver://<SQL hostname>;DatabaseName=<database>

    ( If you are using a non standard port in SQL hostname should add ":<port>" )

    2: Driver Clase Name:

    make sure the user and password are correct connecting with a SQL client.

    Hi Sue,

    the connection test just tries to connect to the DB using the settings given. Two possibilities: You have a network problem or one of the settings is wrong.

    For the latter, two possibilities: The user mapping is wrong or one the the JDBC settings is wrong. Re-check especially the latter, see for details (again).

    Also check the defaulttrace to maybe get deeper insight into the root cause (if you are lucky, the driver for example could not be accessed (than the problem is the (not?) installed driver or it's name), or it works and responds: "user is not authenticated", or whatever).

    Hope it helps
