Re: Connect to GlobelTis database
Hi Yves, As Raik said, there seems to be a pure JDBC driver for Transbase so I suggest you try using it instead of the JDBC/ODBC Bridge which is limited, unstable and no longer supported by the latest Java versions. https://www.transaction.de/en/news/downloads/documentation.html A database URL is the connection string needed to connect to the database via JDBC. The Transbase documentation should describe the exact syntax, but typically it follows a pattern something like jdbc:://:. Again, please consult the Transbase docs. Best Regards, Hans

Re: Connect to GlobelTis database
Hallo Hans, danke für die rasche Antwort, aber ich denke ich muss auf englisch antworten... oder? GlobalTis is GM car diagnostic, programming and documentation software only running on Java 1.6. It´s a database created by/with Transbase. Earlier versions (Tis2000) need the OBDC driver, so I think Globaltis work on it to. GlobalTis is installed on my computer: "http://localhost:9080/tis2web" Okay, I read many things about drivers. 1. do I have to install OBDC-Driver? Is it not already installed? 2. what is meaning "database URL? 3. What´s the name of the the database? Please help to understand... Regards, Yves.

Re: Connect to GlobelTis database
Hi Yves, after some googeling it seems that GlobalTIS uses a *transbase* database. You should be able to find proper JDBC driver for this type of database, maybe somewhere here: https://www.transaction.de/aktuelles/downloads/dokumentation.html After you installed them in DBVis using the driver finder, you should be able to connect to the database, provided that you have all the neccessary information, like server, port and login credentials, etc. Maybe also see this post here: http://www.dbvis.com/forum/thread.jspa?threadID=3969 Raik Edited by: Hans Bergsten on Oct 27, 2015 8:06 PM

Re: Connect to GlobelTis database
Hi, Sorry but I don't know what Opel GlobalTis software is and I don't find anything that seems to point to a database with this name when I google it. If it is a database with a JDBC driver, you should be able to access it using DbVisualizer, but you need to install the driver and read the driver docs for how to connect. You can find information about how to use DbVisualizer here: http://confluence.dbvis.com/display/UG92/Users+Guide Best Regards, Hans
