Step 1: Obtain the MS JDBC driverdriver
Since the MS SQL Server JDBC driver is not available in the central Maven repository, it must be placed into the local repository of each machine on which you wish to build uPortal.
|As an alternative to this, you could set up a maven repository for use by multiple machines.|
- Download MS JDBC driver directly from Microsift, here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=11774
- Follow the installation instructions, noting where the driver JAR file is located
- Note the location of the driver JAR file and the version
Install the driver into the local Maven repository
Code Block language bash title Install MS SQL Server driver
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=com.microsoft.sqlserver -DartifactId=sqljdbc4 -Dversion=<version> -Dpackaging=jar -DgeneratePom=true -Dfile=<driver JAR file>
- Again, note the groupId, artifactId and version. These will be used in Step 3.
