Installing Database Drivers

General Instructions

  1. Download the correct driver
  2. Find the .jar driver file in the download package
  3. Place the driver file in /Library/Java/Extensions
  4. Restart SQLEditor
    You only need to perform the following step if the driver is not visible in the Database Driver List in the Database Preferences pane:
  5. Add the database driver to the driver list.
If you prefer you can install drivers in
/Library/Application Support/SQLEditor/JDBC Drivers/
Drivers installed in this location will be available only to SQLEditor. This may be useful if you intend to run other JDBC applications which require incompatible drivers.

Unsupported Databases

If a database system has a JDBC driver it should work, although databases that use a java swing or AWT user interface in their JDBC driver will probably not.
