In the previous section, we added the JDBC driver for
PostgreSQL for illustration purposes only since, as we
mentioned previously, iReport comes bundled with a JDBC
driver for MySQL. Here, we are creating a connection
to the MySQL FlightStats database we have been using
throughout the topic.
Easiest Way to Enter the JDBC URL
The easiest way to enter the JDBC URL is to populate the
Server Address and Database text fields, and then click on
the Wizard button. This will result in the JDBC URL being
automatically populated with a URL in the correct format
for the RDBMS we are using.
