Support for Progress?
Hello ArcSight community,
Anybody collects events from a Progress database? Looks that there is no support out of the box. Before writing a FlexConnector, maybe some work has already been done? Anybody wants to share?
Thanks in advance!
There is an unpublished document - PM me your email, and I'll send it directly. Or Support can assist in the same way if you provide the KB#.
You very likely chose the wrong odbc setup - the one from Windows System Control (on 64bit systems) points to the 64bit Setup.
As the Connector is a 32bit Java Engine you will need to choose the ODBC Setup from:
Old thread, I know - but hopefully someone sees me 😉
We've had a request for Progress as well, and I followed the guidelines in Damians attachment.
However, after creating the System DNS (tried both 32 and 64 bit) and installing the connector (tried both 32 and 64 bit), when setting up the connector, I don't see 'JDBC Driver = sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver' option 😕
Any ideas what might go wrong?
Thanks in advance
JDK8 has removed JDBC-ODBC bridge, for whatever the reason. Follow the step below, you can enable JDBC-ODBC bridge in JDK 8:
1. Download a JDK 7 or JRE 7 (bitness of JRE7 has to be the same as bitness of JRE8)
2. Go to JRE\lib folder and find the rt.jar
3. Unzip it (if you have WinRAR installed) or you can rename it to rt.zip and unzip it.
4. Copy sun\jdbc and sun\security\action folders out, keep the folder structure. i.e., you should have the folder structure like below:
Sun --> Security --> Action
Sun --> JDBC
5. Open a CMD window. Go to the parent folder of Sun folder. Run the command (JDK must be installed):
jar -cvf jdbc.jar sun
6. The above command will create a file named jdbc.jar
7. Copy JDBC.jar to your JDK8 or JRE8 lib folder
8. Copy jdbcodbc.dll from JRE\bin of your JRE 7 installation to JRE\bin of your JRE 8 installation.
9. Restart your JVM.
