Is there a way to specify an alternate location for JDBC drivers? According to BIRT's documentation, additional drivers are to be placed in a specific folder(/eclipse/plugins/

This poses a major problem for us. Because of the manner in which our company's applications are hosted, end users will not have access to this directory. So we need the ability to place our driver JARs in a different location on the file system.

For the BIRT Runtime, we are able to get around this by setting the following property:

appContext.put("OdaJDBCDriverClassPath", driverLocation);

What we really need is something similar to this that will work with the Report Designer.

Try doing the same, in the beforeOpen of the dataSource, with something like: reportContext.getAppContext().put(OdaJDBCDriverClassPath",driverLocation);
