For this procedure, you need to already have a Berkeley DB XML database installed on your system.

Oxygen XML Editor supports Berkeley DB XML versions 2.3.10, 2.4.13, 2.4.16 & 2.5.16. To configure a data source for a Berkeley DB XML database, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Data Sources.
  2. Click the New button in the Data Sources panel.
  3. Enter a unique name for the data source.
  4. Select Berkeley DBXML from the driver Type drop-down menu.
  5. Click the Add Files button to add the Berkeley DB driver files.

    The driver files for the Berkeley DB database (and their locations) are as follows:

    • db.jar (check for it in [DBXML_DIR]/lib or [DBXML_DIR]/jar)
    • dbxml.jar (check for it in [DBXML_DIR]/lib or [DBXML_DIR]/jar)

    Where [DBXML_DIR] is the Berkeley DB XML database root directory. For example, in Windows it is: C:\Program Files\Oracle\Berkeley DB XML <version>.

  6. Click the OK button to finish the data source configuration.
  7. Continue on to configure your Berkeley DB XML connection.
