RE: [birt-dev] Preview doesn't work but Standalone Tomcat works.

Thank you for your interest in BIRT.


Answer for you question is below: 

In BIRT, currently the jar file of JDBC driver needs to be put into two places. One is %eclipse_home%\plugins\\drivers, and the other is %eclipse_home%\plugins\\birt\plugins\\drivers. If in a little earlier time, the latter is %eclipse_home%\plugins\\birt\plugins\WEB-INF\\drivers

Subject: [birt-dev] Preview doesn't work but Standalone Tomcat works.


I am quite new to BIRT but using Eclipse for more than a year.

I was a able to create a simple report and was able to see the preview in the 'Data Set', but when I hit the preview tab in the editor area, I see the following error.

Error0 : odaconsumer.CannotOpenConnection(1 time)
detail: Cannot open the connection for the driver
Cannot load JDBC Driver class: [oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver]. 
Cannot load JDBC Driver class: [oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver]. 

I am using Oracle and latest Eclipse & BIRT.

I copied ojdbc14.jar to C:\Apps\\eclipse\plugins\

Same report works perfect from standalone tomcat using this ojdbc14.jar.

Thanks for any help,
