If you are connecting to a database server, you need to install and configure the JDBC driver for that database. This section describes how to do that with DB Driver Installer.

DB Driver Installer works best when your KNIME Server administrator has already set up JDBC data source profiles for the database you are working with.

Installation of the ADB Driver Installer:

DBeaver requires that you install the Easysoft ODBC-SQL Server Driver on the system where you will be running DSpace. In most cases, this is /usr/local.

Generally, JDBC drivers use URLs to identify remote servers – strings of the form jdbc:vendor:host: port/database. You can also specify advanced properties for the connection – see Connecting using data sources for more information.

Each driver package part (separated by a “.”) represents a folder in the file system, and each of these folders contains the class files that make up the driver.

In some cases, the class files are in Maven artifacts and can be downloaded from a public repository (see DBeaver Maven Support). You can add either individual jar files or Maven artifacts to DBeaver.

When you do, DBeaver will load the driver classes and make them available to all DBeaver users. In addition, DBeaver will load the ODBC drivers that have been configured as part of the DSpace build.


The driver consists of one or more jar files (Java libraries) that contain program code and resource data. Most drivers can be downloaded from some public repository such as Maven (it’s a global public repository of Java libraries, usually open-source).

DBeaver supports downloading and using driver jar files directly from Maven repositories or via HTTP and can use any driver version found (a user-configured DriverManager is used to obtain a database connection).

DbVisualizer already bundles JDBC drivers for Azure SQL Database, Oracle, db2, Greenplum, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase, and Yellowbrick, which are available in predefined templates that you can select in the Connections dialog.

You can find more information about how to choose a database type and JDBC driver on the Databases and JDBC Drivers page.

You can also configure DbVisualizer to use JNDI (Java Naming and Directory Interface) to obtain a database connection.

This involves some additional driver-dependent configuration tasks outside of DbVisualizer (usually in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or other environment variables). This option is described on the Databases and JDBC Drivers pages.

Loading ADB Driver Installer:

A significant part of critical information in modern businesses is not stored on traditional databases. Instead, it is located in file systems, indexed-sequential files like Btrieve, productivity tools like spreadsheets and project management planners, and in electronic mail and on the World Wide Web.

JDBC drivers are required to connect to all these different types of databases. The Driver Manager can be configured to manually locate and configure drivers or to use a powerful feature called the JDBC Driver Finder that automatically loads and configures new drivers as they are available.

The Driver Finder requires the JDBC driver jar files to be available in a directory that is accessible to the Driver Manager.

This includes driver jars that are published as Maven artifacts (a global public repository of Java libraries, usually an open source) as well as jars that have been downloaded individually to a directory.

The Driver Finder also requires the JVM options of the database driver to be set in order to properly recognize the class file names of the JDBC driver classes.

Errors ADB Driver Installer:

During the installation process for DB Driver Installer, the JDBC driver finder checks if the downloaded jar files are in the right folder (in DBVIS_HOME/jdbc). If so, the jar file is automatically loaded and configured when creating a database connection.

The jar files have names that consist of several package parts separated by “.”. Each part represents a sub-folder where the class files are stored. The DB Driver Installer finds the classes which represent main driver classes, by looking through these folder structures.

Most drivers use a special URL to identify the remote server. The format is usually jdbc:vendor:host: port/database. DBeaver constructs this URL for you, but sometimes the result is not correct.

In this case, you should check the driver documentation and fix it. If you have a good configuration for a particular driver and want to share it with the community, please send it to us. We can then add it to our collection of bundled drivers.
