Subject Re: Adding support for MaxDB in ActiveMQ JDBC persistence layer
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2006 13:57:33 GMT
Hi Johan

So mostly we need to work out the flavour of SQL that MaxDB supports
and to figure out what the DDL should look like etc. We have a number
of JDBC adaptors for the various different drives together with how
they handle data types and blobs etc. It could be we just need to
write one for MaxDB.

Also it could be we need to tweak a little the SQL data types we use -
I"ve just added a new section to this page describing how to do

Once we basically know the right combination of options that work for
MaxDB, we can add an entry into ActiveMQ so that we auto-discover the
database from the JDBC connection type name and do the right thing.

e.g. here is the current list of auto-discovered configurations of
JDBC, where the file name is the JDBC connection type name returned
from the JDBC driver

I see that it supports quite a lot of databases, but unfortunately not the one that my company
is using (MaxDB (formerly SAPDB), I try to configure
activemq to use it by copying its JDBC jar file to activemq's lib directory, and configuring
activemq.xml to use it like this:

starting ActiveMQ, I get these errors (I have created the database user mentioned above, but
not created any tables in that schema):

The ActiveMQ web site further mentions that "If you have a JDBC database which we don't support
then please let us know what JDBC driver string you're getting." If someone would tell me
how, I'd be happy to provide the JDBC string I'm getting (could it be "sap_db", as seen in
the output snippet above?), and help in any other way I can to add support for this database.
