Problem with AS400 driver with SQL for Confluence plugin


We use the SQL for Confluence plugin. We set up a DataSource for an AS400/DB2 database which is in V7R1.

The Datasource configuration is as follows : 

<Resource name="jdbc/AS400DS" maxWait="-1" maxIdle="10" maxActive="20" password="*******" username="bi" url="jdbc:as400://as400inf;prompt=false;translate binary=true; extended metadata=true" driverClassName="" type="javax.sql.DataSource" auth="Container"/>


When using the {sql-query} macro, we get this error : 

Erreur du rendu de la macro 'sql-query' :

Any advice?

Add a select 1 validation query to your configuration. See Data source configuration - application server for how that looks in a configuration.

Hi Bob,

It seems we are moving foward on this problem.

We still have a problem : Erreur du rendu de la macro 'sql-query' : java.sql.SQLException: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory ([SQL0104] Elément syntaxique <FIN-INSTRUCTION> n'est pas correct. Eléments possibles : + - AS <IDENTIFIER>.)

I think the important info is  : Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory. We checked the SQL query and it's working fine with the DB client (select NAME from METADATA.BI_ACTIONS).

Do you think it could come from the datasource configuration?



"Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory" is coming from the application server (Tomcat) trying to use your configuration to connect to the database. I suspect your recent addition of the validation query may have a syntax problem???
