Configuring JDBC driver and creating connection

In this document, I will try to explain how to install JDBC drivers in BusinessObjects and how to create a connection.

Step 1:

Download the jdbc drivers of the database you are trying to connect which could be Oracle, Teradata, MS SQL,and etc. In this case, I will be using Oracle JDBC drivers.

The link to download oracle drivers:

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 JDBC Driver Downloads

Download the ojdbc6.jar file for this example and save it some place in your machine.
