generic JDBC is unsupported [message #39120] Tue, 27 November 2007 14:43 Go to next message

Yesterday I could connect to a MySQL database in the Data Source Explorer
using the generic JDBC connection profile type.

Today my connection profile has mysteriously moved to the Unsupported
folder (it was in the Databases folder). Attempts to connect fail, and the
generic JDBC connection profile type is no longer offered when I try to
create a new connection profile in the Databases folder.

What happened? How do I fix it? I'm an eclipse newbie.

This is likely the result of some plug-ins that DTP depends on not
loading, and then the rest comes crashing down. Did you change anything in
your Eclipse environment? (add/move/delete?)

Also, you'll want to take a look at the .log file in your
workspace/.metadata folder to see if any errors or warnings have appeared.

Thanks John

I have a bunch of exceptions in my log file, much too much to quote but
they seem to relate to mylyn (don't know what that is) and clearcase
(that's seems to be working correctly). I don't know if those were
happening before I noticed this DTP problem.

The only thing I did around the time that DTP stopped working was try to
install TPTP which was a bit of a nightmare, still not working fully.

Any ideas?

John,

Please do a search in the .log file for anything starting with
"org.eclipse.datatools" -- just the top 2 or 3 lines from each stack/log
message would be useful. Often you'll find the same error repeated a
number of times, so we'd hope that there's only 0 or a couple of DTP items
there. :-)

No, nothing relating to datatools.

I'm inclined to uninstall Eclipse and start again.
