Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Update 2 Developer's Guide

Configurations for Specific JDBC Drivers

Application Server 8.1 is designed to support connectivity to any database management system with a corresponding JDBC driver. The following JDBC driver and database combinations are supported. These combinations have been tested with Application Server 8.1 and are found to be J2EE compatible. They are also supported for CMP.

For an up to date list of currently supported JDBC drivers, see the Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Update 2 Release Notes.

Other JDBC drivers can be used with Application Server 8.1, but J2EE compliance tests have not been completed with these drivers. Although Sun offers no product support for these drivers, Sun offers limited support of the use of these drivers with Application Server 8.1.

For details about how to integrate a JDBC driver and how to use the Administration Console or the command line interface to implement the configuration, see the Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Update 2 Administration Guide.


Note –

An Oracle database user running the capture-schema command needs ANALYZE ANY TABLE privileges if that user does not own the schema. These privileges are granted to the user by the database administrator. For information about capture-schema, see Using the capture-schema Utility.


PointBase Type 4 Driver

The PointBase JDBC driver is included with the Application Server by default, except for the Solaris bundled installation, which does not include PointBase. Therefore, unless you have the Solaris bundled installation, you do not need to integrate this JDBC driver with the Application Server.

PointBase is intended for evaluation use only, not for production or deployment use.

The JAR file for the PointBase driver is pbclient.jar.
