Editing the servertemplate file



  1. Open the dqportal/resources/hsql/servertemplate file to edit it.
  2. Replace [%TOMCAT_IP%] and [%TOMCAT_PORT%] with the IP address of the Apache Tomcat server and the appropriate SApache Tomcat server port (as set by the user) respectively.
  3. Replace [%TDQ_DB_DRIVER_CLASS_NAME%] with
    • com.mysql.jdbc.Driver if you use MySQL,

    • oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver if you use Oracle,

    • net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver if you use MS SQL Server,

    • org.postgresql.Driver if you use PostgreSQL.

  4. Replace [%TDQ_DB_URL%] with the connection URL to the data mart database.

    Database Type

    Connection URL





    MS SQL Server

    url="jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://$ip:$dmport/$datamart" validationQuery="select 1"



    Note that $ip, $dmport and $datamart in the connection URL need to be replaced with the IP address, port number, and name of the data mart database respectively. By default, the database created by the Studio is named talend_dq. Make sure you use the same database name in the connection URL and in the Studio. For further information about setting up a distant database from the studio, see Talend Studio User Guide.
  5. Replace [%TDQ_DB_USERNAME%] and [%TDQ_DB_PASSWORD%] with the username and password of the data mart database respectively.
  6. Delete [%VALIDATION_QUERY%].
  7. In <Environment name="spagobi_resource_path" type="java.lang.String" value="../resources"/>, replace ../resources by the absolute file path.
    For example: value="C:/Program Files/Tomcat 9.0/resources"
  8. Copy the content of the servertemplate file inside the <GlobalNamingResources> part of the <TomcatPath>/conf/server.xml file, then save your edits before closing the file.
