|Server Side 'Connection Profile' Usage [message #672040]

I am using BIRT to create reports on my local machine (Mac OS X) that are then moved to a Linux cloud server (Amazon) which also has a copy of the MySQL connector (JAR file) in the same location as my machine (so when the XML file, the .rptdesign, is moved up it looks for the JAR in the same location and has no problem finding it). These reports is then available as an in-line view via a URL that my users incorporate into our Sugar CRM system.
This all works great with the database logon built into each XML file (whereas each reports logon is independent of the other) but I would like to leverage a 'Connection Profile' so that the DB logon for each report looks in the same spot (which will make scaling much easier). No problem on my local instance using Eclipse/Birt etc.
But I would like to put the necessary files for the Connection Profile on the Linux server (which does not have an Eclipse install) so that when the reports are moved up it knows where to find what it needs to successfully run the reports. I have taken the simpleton's approach and just tried to move the files for the Connection Profile up from the same location on my machine to the server but this does not work.
Any suggestions? Thoughts? How-To's anyone out there would recommend?
