Starting with version 17, Oxygen XML Editor comes bundled with Java 8, which does not provide built-in access to JDBC-ODBC data sources. To access such sources, you need to find an alternative JDBC-ODBC bridge or use a platform-independent distribution of Oxygen XML Editor along with a Java VM version 7 or 6.

To configure a generic JDBC data source, 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 Generic JDBC in the driver Type drop-down list.
  5. Add the driver file(s) using the Add Files button.
  6. Select the most appropriate Driver class.
  7. Click the OK button to finish the data source configuration.
  8. Continue on to configure a generic JDBC connection.
