Dear experts,

As you know the latest version for SAP BusinessObject4.2's new feature is supporting data access for Spark SQL.

I had installed a BO4.2 server and client in a windows server 2008R2, of course I have Spark working in my local Linux server, the Spark is linked with Cassandra data.

I could using Tableau client(version 10) to connect Spark SQL successful and retrieve the data in Cassandra, But it seems not working in BO universe, here below the step:

1, After install BO client, there has Simba Spark ODBC diver installed automatically.

2, Create an Data Source Name via above driver and the testing is success.

3, Create an connection in BO Universe via ODBC or ODBC3 (I tried both), then select the DSN name in step 2.

4, the connection testing is ok, but don't know why I can't see any databases and tables in Spark SQL, it doesn't report any error.

5, with above step, it could be working with tableau client (the driver is provide by Tableau).

Can you guys help to me to fix this ?
