I am confused about filter sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver

I used sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver connect to the mdb file directly,but in setup-datasource-standard.jsp “sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver” is filtered for some season, I know that wildfire is support an embedded-db. but sometimes we can use mdb normally.

there are no comment about that.

Hi Daniel,

do you hit this problem during the initial setup?

Did you use “Standard Database Connection” and did hit then a problem?


Yes, When I init my wildfire server, I type drivername as “sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver”, It return a errormessage as “Please enter a valid JDBC driver class”; I look up source code it filter “sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver” and say that is “a valid JDBC driver class”, I have aleady change source code to fit my demand, It just a confuse, no trouble or problem, I just want to know the reason, maybe it will be a little secret, hehe.

Thanks LG…

Hi Daniel,

would you please the diff so Gato or Matt can change the code.
