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.
