Installing JDBC drivers
Most JDBC drivers ship as a
.jar (java archive) file. Funnelback is configured to automatically make
.jar files installed in certain locations available to the database gathering components.
To install a JDBC driver, simply copy the
.jar file to the following directory (where
is the directory that Funnelback has been installed in):
When installing drivers be careful to install only one version of any particular driver to avoid any Java errors relating to duplicate class definitions.
