Response to: Pointbase? And MySQL?

I was able to connect to the MySQL & PB databases with SQL4X Manager J.

I gave you some wrong information in my previous post, the following is correct.

  1. Make a copy of the PointBase driver file and put it where SQLEX Manajer J can find it. Copy pbserver42RE.jar from:




  2. Restart SQL4X Manager J, so it can locate the copied driver

  3. Setup a connection:

    Database Server: Generic JDBC
    Driver Installed: Yes

    The following can be copied from the cfsnippets DSN in the CFMX Administrator

    Display Name: cfsnippets

    JDBC Driver: com.pointbase.jdbc.jdbcUniversalDriver

    JDBC URL: jdbc:pointbase:cfsnippets,database.home=/Applications/JRun4/servers/cfmx1/cfusion/WEB-INF/cfusion/db



  4. Connect to the cfsnippets Database
  5. Open a new Navigator window to recognize the new connection
  6. Select the PBPUBLIC schema to view the cfsnippets schema
