2. Installing Connect XML-2-DB

Connect XML-2-DB is a Java application compliant with JDK1.4.x and up. A Java virtual machine is required to run the tool. We recommend that you obtain the latest copy of the JDK from Sun Microsystems.

Connect XML-2-DB also requires a JDBC driver. The software includes the INET Gate3 JDBC driver for Oracle, SQL Server and Sybase databases. This is the only supported JDBC driver.

In addition, Connect XML-2-DB requires an XML parser. The xerces java parser is included with Connect XML-2-DB.

Windows Installation

If you want to install Connect XML-2-DB into the directory C:\xml2db_ver_1_0, then
  1. Extract the contents of the zip file into C:\xml2db_ver_1_0.
  2. Ensure that the archives 'xml2db.jar' and 'xerces.jar' are listed in your 'CLASSPATH' environment variable. On Windows environments, you can set the CLASSPATH environment variable by using the following command:
    set CLASSPATH=xml2db.jar;xerces.jar;%CLASSPATH%

Unix Installation

If you want to install Connect XML-2-DB into the directory /opt/xml2db_ver_1_0, then
  1. Extract the contents of the .tar.gz file into /opt/xml2db_ver_1_0 by running, for example,
    gunzip xml2db_or_demo.tar.gz
    tar xvf xml2db_or_demo.tar
  2. Ensure that the archives 'xml2db.jar' and 'xerces.jar' are listed in your 'CLASSPATH' environment variable. On Unix environments, from the /bin/ksh you can set the CLASSPATH environment variable by using the following command:
    export CLASSPATH="xml2db.jar:xerces.jar:$CLASSPATH"

Please refer to the JDK documentation for your platform if you are unsure how to set the 'CLASSPATH' environment variable.
