I recently set up a small test machine (XP Pro) and installed Jasperserver Community Edition to test out functionality. I configured my Data Source (SQL 2008) using the JTDS driver (1.3.1) and everything has been working great.
I received approval to purchase some addtional hardware, but due to budget constraints i opted to install on Ubuntu Server instead of purchasing Microsoft Server. I installed Tomcat 7 and PostgreSQL and used the manual WAR installation to set up Jasperserver. Everything seems to be running great as far as the server and the installation of Jasperserver. I am able to log into the JasperServer Web portal without error.
I copied the JTDS driver into my jasperserver/WEB-INF/lib folder and rebooted, but when i attempt to set up the Data Source I receive an Error Box that is completely blank. I have attempted to turn on logging for the JDBC driver but so far I have been able to generate any log files.
I guess my biggest concern is that maybe the JTDS driver does not work with OpenJDK 6, but i am not 100% if that is the case
Any help or insight is appreciated.
Sun Java isnt supported under the Ubuntu Repositories, i tried to install it manually using some instructions online but it would crash Tomcat whenever i attempted to run a report.
I ended up reinstalling Open JDK 6 since it is supported by JasperServer and switched my JDBC driver to the Microsoft Driver instead of the JTDS Driver.
