Error Installing JDBC Adapter 603

When I install JDBC Adapter 6.0.3 in IS 6.I get the following error:

[ART.118.5036] Adapter Runtime (Connection): Unable to configure connection manager. javax/sql/DataSource

The connections I had get disabled and I cannot make new ones.

I did the following procedure:

  • Stop ID
  • Uninstall JDBC Adapter 6.0.2
  • Install JDBC Adapter 6.0.3
  • Start IS

Product webMethods Integration Server Version 6.0.1
Updates IS_6-0-1_SP2_Fix73
Build Number 425

Does anyone tried JDBC Adapter 6.0.3?

Joao - We noticed the same error when upgrading to JDBC Adapter 6.0.3 and have opened an SR with wM Support. And actually, even if you install JDBC Adapter 6.0.3 from scratch, we ran into this issue. In the meantime, the following workaround resolved the problem:

  • create a directory called “…\packages\WmJDBCAdapter\code\jars\static”
  • put in this directory

If you’ll notice in your 6.0.2 instance of JDBC Adapter, this “static” directory exists. However, it doesn’t in 6.0.3 and therefore the “javaxsql” is not being sourced with version 6.0.3. This is probably because the script doesn’t know where to find this package.

Hope this helps,

The zip file that is needed is actually called “”. See

Thanks, Rajesh!
