BO3.1SP7 connect to JDBC with multiple JAR dependancies

Hi,

We've always been able to connect to JDBC datasources (supported or not) with BO3.1 when the JAR files have been signular in the SBO e.g.

<ClassPath>
<Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\arc_jdbc101.jar</Path>
</ClassPath>

Has anyone connected to a database (Supported or not) that requires multiple JAR files and how did you do it. I've tried adding multiple <Path> to the <ClassPath> but continues to get a class not found error, similar to the error we get when we don't include all JAR files in Eclipse

Thanks.

    I never did jdbc in XI3 but I have in BI4. Multiple <Path> elements works. Not sure if it's the cause of your problem, but try replacing the backslashes in the path with forward slashes.

    Hello,

    You should be able to add the path to the jar files in the path separated by a semi-colon...for example:

    if you saved the jar file under the jdbc folder (would not recommand that)

    You should create a folder for those jar files under the jdbc and add all the files..I called it test..

    Than

    <ClassPath>

    <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\test\arc_jdbc101.jar; C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\test\arc_jdbc102.jar; C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\test\arc_jdbc103.jar </Path>

    </ClassPath>

    I hope this will help you.

    Thanks,

    Sonet
