General Settings for the Definintion of a JDBC Data Source
Enter a Connection Name.
For access, a JDBC data source class must be specified as the data
source. Intrexx can access all data source classes entered in the Java
class path. If you connect a data source that has no class assigned to
it, please copy the library (*.jar) to the directory intrexx\lib
Afterwards all Intrexx services have to be restarted.
In the Descriptor Class
drop-down list, the
underlying data source class will be entered. Normally, this class will
be made available to you by JDBC2 conforming drivers. If this is not
the case, you can establish access to JDBC1-similar drivers with the
data source class de.uplanet.server.poolmanager.EmulatedPooledDataSource
You can look in your software's documentation to see if your driver
fulfils these requirements. The descriptors class must be entered for
access to the data source and the corresponding data fields in the
correct SQL syntax to be possible. This is responsible, for example,
for how date formats are queried. Clicking Wizard
will open an assistant that
will help you through the configuration process.
In the Advanced settings
area, the time zone of the foreign data source can be set.
The setting Allow Write Access
makes it possible to change the data in the foreign data source.
Please note that United Planet can provide no support for data inconsistency resulting from write access given to foreign data sources.
