Recital JDBC error - No suitable driver

2003-04-10 06:13

Using iReport-0.0.9, Recital's JDBC Driver fails during database connection testing. The error message is..

 

ERROR

SQL problems:

No suitable driver

java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver

at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(...)

...

CODE 4

 

But the same driver on iReport-0.0.5 does not fail the database connection test.

 

Do I have a non-compliant JDBC driver? Is there a difference in JDBC functionality between 0.0.9 and 0.0.5?

 

What is the best thing to do?

In effect there is an importat difference between 0.0.5 and 0.0.9: in the last version the access to database using JDBC by iReport (i.e. to test connections or retrive database fields) is performed using an external program (pure java program) called IReportJDBCConnector. This means 2 things:

1) you need to have this class in the classpath (it is shipped with iReport from 0.0.8 and is present in bin directory that it's already in the classpath)

2) you must add your driver in the Java Classpath (no MS Java classpath).

 

I hope this helps you.

I still get the same error...

 

I'm providing the full error message including the line numbers...

 

ERROR

SQL problems:

No suitable driver

java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver

at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:532)

at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:171)

at IReportJDBCConnector.main(IReportJDBCConnector.java:62)

CODE 4

 

The JBDC driver is already in the Java Classpath. When I remove it from the classpath, I get ClassNotFoundError.

 

I get a successful database connection using another JDBC driver like the jtopen driver for IBM AS400, so I guess there is nothing wrong with my installation.

 

Can you help me isolate the problem further?

 

By the way, this is a nice piece of work. Keep it up!!!

I think that the poblem is the url that you use to connect to the database (No suitable driver is throws when there is not a driver to decode the particular protocol).

 

i.e. mysql:// is a protocol

as400:// is a protocol

ecc....

 

Check your JDBC url.

I created a java program to validate the url and driver name I was using. Portion of the code is, as follows:

 

========

 

try {

 

Class.forName ("Recital.sql.RecitalDriver").newInstance();

 

String url = "jdbc:Recital:"SERVERNAME=192.168.0.10;DIRECTORY=/usr/recital-8.4/uas/netdata/metro/data;USERNAME=root;PASSWORD=redhat73";

 

Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "uas", "uas");

 

Statement stmt = con.createStatement();

 

DatabaseMetaData dbmd = con.getMetaData();

System.out.println(dbmd.getDriverVersion() + "n" + dbmd.getDriverName());

con.close();

} catch (Exception e) {

system.out.flush();

system.err.flush();

e.printStackTrace();

}

 

=====

 

I got the following results...

 

1.0

Recital JDBC Driver

 

... without any exception being thrown.

 

Notice that the URL does not contain the any // after jdbc:Recital:. Putting the // triggers an exception, saying...

 

java.sql.SQLException: Invalid URL format for Recital. Expected SERVERNAME= not //SERVERNAM

 

Is IReportJDBCConnector reforming the url before calling DriverManager.getConnection ?

The correct url is ...

 

String url = "jdbc:Recital:SERVERNAME=192.168.0.10;DIRECTORY=/usr/recital-8.4/uas/netdata/metro/data;USERNAME=root;PASSWORD=redhat73";

 

... with the double-quotes removed before SERVERNAME.

 

USERNAME and PASSWORD has to be included in the url otherwise exception is thrown by Recital JDBC driver.

Hi rex,

 

Do you have succesfully solved the problem or not ?

Not yet.

 

The driver name and url that I've been using is working on another java program. The values are:

 

driver name = "Recital.sql.RecitalDriver"

url = "jdbc:Recital:"SERVERNAME=192.168.0.10;DIRECTORY=/usr/recital-8.4/uas/netdata/metro/data;USERNAME=root;PASSWORD=redhat73"

 

I cannot see the source code for IReportJDBCConnector... Can you tell me if

IReportJDBCConnector is reforming the url before calling DriverManager.getConnection ?

 

Thanks for your support...

I have added IReportJDBCConnector.java to CVS repository.

You can download it at:

 

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/ireport/iReport/IReportJDBCConnector.java

 

I post here the entire code, because it's very simple...

I finally got it!!!

 

I changed the way the JDBC driver was loaded by IReportJDBCConnector from

Class.forName( jdbDriver ) to

Class.forName( jdbDriver ).newInstance()

 

Now, I'm getting a succesful database connection.

 

Thanks a lot for your patience.

I guess I'll also need the source for IReportCompiler as well.

 

I get the same error "No suitable driver" from IReportCompiler when I try to compile a report with a Recital database connection.

You can fine IReportCompiler at:
