FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
Version = Forte(tm) for Java(tm), release 4.0, ee
EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
1.4.0 JDK Sybase JConnect 5.5 connecting to
Sybase 12.0 Database.
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When adding a JDBC driver to the Explorer
[Runtime]/Databases/Drivers, there is no
provision to specify the entire Properties list
belonging to the driver. Specifically, our Sybase
driver requires us to set its
CHARSET_CONVERTER_CLASS property to
something other than its default value before we
can even login to the database. You should allow
the user to specify these "extended" properties
like JBuilder does. Without this capability, we
can't use Forte EE in our environment.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1. Add a databse driver using Explorer
2. You'll see that there is no provision to define
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
The driver's Properties dialog should inspect the
driver and provide a list of the driver's properties
and allow the user to edit them. Currently,
these "extended" properties are not available.
Look at the way JBuilder provides this
This bug can be reproduced always.
