    Default My data

    What should i do to make a connection with my data? Where should I copy my mysql driver to achieve it?

    That depends entirely on what you're trying to connect your database to. If, for example, you're using the pre-configured install (PCI) of the Pentaho platform, then you'll need to drop your mySql JAR files in the jboss/server/default/lib directory, and then edit a bunch of files.

    Try this page for a basic overview of getting your data connected to Pentaho.

    If you're trying to get a different program connected to your database (i.e. Jasper or some reporting program) then we'd need more specifics.

    I have tried all the step from the link that you have sent to me and the portal gives me an error:

    solutiondocument samples\datasources\Myfirst.xacton is not a xml document (org.pentaho.repositoy.filebase.solution.SolutionRepository)

    I hope you can help me. I am really interested on it

    Can you post the contents of your Myfirst.xaction and the URL your using to access the xaction file (e.g. http://localhost:8080/Pentaho/.... blah blah ... =Myfirst.xaction)?

    I'm not certain, but it may be case sensitive (i.e. myfirst versus Myfirst vs. MyFirst).
