The database connector is a web application that allows you to easily integrate your forms and flows with your external database.
frevvo only supports/certifies the Database Connector running in the tomcat container. Refer to our Supported Platforms for the list of Application Servers and databases supported/certified by frevvo.
The Database Connector can be configured to run in:
- the frevvo tomcat bundle - if you have installed the tomcat In-house bundle you already have what you need.
- Standalone mode - Cloud customers, who are integrating with their database in their on-premise installation, may prefer this mode as it eliminates the need to run a full application on their in-house server. This mode may also be helpful for in-house customers who want to run the connector on a different server than the installation.
The Database Connector requires a JDBC driver for your database. Some pre-installed drivers are included with the connector. See Install a JDBC driver to see if the driver for your database is provided.
The database connector contains a working sample Derby database with BIRT and MyStore query sets and some test data. This makes it very easy to test if the DB Connector is up and running when your installation is complete.
These instructions apply to Cloud customers who want to run the Database Connector on an in-house server and customers who run and the Database Connector in an in-house environment.
