I want to add a new driver and added it to the tomcat->lib in my JasperSoft directory. But when I want to install it over the webpage it isn't listed there to install.
Does anyone have an idea what causes this problem? Or am I supposed to add the driver file to another location?
Thanks for your answer. I tried it serveral times, and restartet the server and firefox. Stopped the services and processes so that really nothing was running anymore. Restartet everything, but didn't find it.
I also read online to copy it into the folder you mentioned, but didn't work out as well :/
Next try was to add it to C:\Jaspersoft\jasperreports-server-cp-6.1.0\buildomatic\conf_source\db as i read in a forum. Nothing as well :/
I'm running out of ideas right now. There are lib folders in the sub-folder "java" in "JasperSoft", maybe put it there?
Unfortunately I can't find the thread anymore which suggested "copy the driver file to the locale file system where the browser runs". Any idea ?
Yes I'm using 6.1.0. Could you please explain what you mean by that or how I can do that? :)
By now I'm using http://localhost:8080/jasperserver , right klick on "Data Source" -> "Add Resource" -> "Data Source". And in the Dropdown-Menu "JDBC-Driver" my Driver file is not listed. :/
Here is the link to the advise "The desired JDBC driver must be copied to the local file system from where the browser is run.". But I don't really know where to put my file :/ It should be correct placed in tomcat->lib
Maybe that's what you meant. I managed to get pop up where I could upload a file. But when I browse my jar.file it just shows me a warning "name", nothing else :/
What could there be the problem?
Ok thank you ver much!
But in the line "JDBC Driver (required)" what am I supposed to put in there? The name of my driver, the directory?
When I do a window pops up and I need to browse a file. And when I browse my driver file it just says "name" with a warning symbol in front of it but no further information. :/
I want to use SAP DB, with sapdbc.jar as driver file.
I found this on a website "com.sap.dbtech.jdbc.DriverSapDB" and put it in the line "JDBC Driver (required)" then when I browse my Driver file I don't get any error, but it doesn't upload either. :/
Thanks for your help so far hozawa. :)
Ok, think the problem is solved.
I changed from firefox to IE and it worked there. The driver is now listed in the drop-down menu.
I entered "com.sap.dbtech.jdbc.DriverSapDB" and browsed my driver file there.
Thank you very much hozawa. You really helped me ;)
Btw: Once installed and registered in IE it also worked in Firefox.
