Using BIRT with Pervasive or Btrieve How to set up a Data Source using DDFs.
Posted 20 June 2012 - 08:23 AM
I attended BIRT Roadshows. Now I want to get started.
I use a database called Pervasive. It used to be called Btrieve.
I have lots of data.
Btrieve uses DDF files. These are Data Definition Files.
We use DDFs to set up ODBC data sources.
I have it working in this way with Microsoft Access.
When I tried to set up a new Data Source in the BIRT Designer, it offered JDBC,but not ODBC.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Then use jdbc:odbc:yourodbcdb
for the database url. Change the yourodbcdb to the one you need.
