Help Needed : Setting JDBC Datasource in Crystal XI using Sybase 12.5??



We are migrating our systems to the Crystal XI from Crystal 9 Reporting Servers. I need some technical assistance on the Java API ( use of the Datasources) .

Problem: Currently in Crystal 9 we are using OLEDB datasources to connect to various Sybase 12.5 databases (which is been set programmatically at runtime). After I changed the Java code for getting the report object from the Crystal XI server instead of 9. I stared facing the dbLogon failed exceptions.. But surprisingly it does work randomly on only one datasource for a given session (AppServer Restart).

Need Help on Topics:

1. Is there any different way of configuring/usage the OLEDB datasources for CrXI? or any Java API changes while setting the datasource when using OLEDB?

2. Configuration required for using Simple JDBC connection (Sybase) instead of OLEDB? Can I get detailed help on this.

I will prefer using JDBC for CrXI using the Sybase 12.5, but there are very less documentation for how to configure and set databases at runtime.

Many Thanks in Adv.
