Hi,

is there a possibility to create/maintain reports using the BIRT RCP Report Designer application and connecting to an Apache Derby data base server only accepting SSL encrypted communication?

I am aware of the ssl= attribute I need to specify on the data base connection URL for the Derby JDBC driver when defining the data source, but where and how do I tell the BIRT Designer where to find the java keystore file storing the certificate that would need to be presented to the server?

Thanks
Thomas

no answer after quite some time - would the next step be to raise a feature request based on the assumption that this is NOT possible?

Thomas,

I have not tried this but have you seen this link:
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/adminguide/cadminsslclient.html

Could you try using something like
jdbc:derby://myhost:1527/db;ssl=basic as the jdbc url? And set the
system properties for the keystore?
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStore","clientKeyStore.key");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword","qwerty");

Jason
