JDBC Connectivity with BI Platform 4.0 and Sybase IQ 15.4 on Linux

Hi All,

I am trying to make a connection on the Universe Design Tool and the Information Design Tool using JDBC but I get the following error:

"CS: Java Class not found in classpath : com.sybase.jdbc3.jdbc.SybDriver"

It turns out that Sybase IQ 15.4 is using jConnect version 7.0 which makes use of the following class: "com.sybase.jdbc4.jdbc.SybDriver".

I have added the following variables: JAVA_HOME, JDBC_HOME, and CLASSPATH and modified the sybase.sbo to point to jconn4.jar (instead of jconn3.jar) file as per the following link: but to no avail.

Can anyone help me out please?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

    Dear Ron,

    Could you please do the following :

    1. locate the jar file specific for the Sybase 15 database.

    2. Copy The jar file to the location : <Intallation Dir of BO>\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\con necti onServer\drivers\java\<jar file>.

    3. Add the path in sybase.sbo file in the following directory <Installation directory for BO>\SAPBusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\Sybase.sbo.

    Under Sybase IQ 15, Add the following:



    <Installation directory for BO>\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\driv ers\java\<jar file>



    Test the issue then.

    Please refer also to this KBA "1629250 - BI 4.0 Java Class Not Found In Classpath Or No Suitable Driver Found For JDBC" :

    I hope this helps.

    Best and Kind Regards,
