Possible not found class: org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver in Fishbowl

I am trying to set up connection in iReport in Fishbowl inventory, but got the error message "Possible not found class: org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver", tried many ways suggested but none of them worked.

Here is my settings:

1. Install Fishbowl Inventory and iReport Designer on your system.

2.Add Jaybird jar file (FireBirdSql database driver) to the Classpath.

Tools –> Options –> iReport –> Classpath

3.Create a jdbc connection

JDBC driver - org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver

JDBC url - jdbc:firebirdsql://\Program Files (x86)\Fishbowl\database\data\LWFLOORING.FDB

Username – gone

Password – fishing



Anything that I did wrong????

I know this is a little late but... I had the exact same problem and I tried everything I could find on the web.

I was using java 6. I upgraded to java 7. Boom! Worked.

Also, I didn't put the port of the server, but I don't think that would matter since it looks like you are using the right port for this.

In my previous attempts to get it to work, I had already added the driver to services and copied the driver to ireport directory: /ide10/modules/ext/ but I'm not sure if that had anything to do with getting it to work.

Hope this helps someone.
