Configure a Progress JDBC database source

  1. Download the Progress database JDBC driver (openedge.jar).

  2. Stop Jitterbit services by running StopServices.bat in your Jitterbit Home directory

  3. Copy the JAR file to the following recommended folder path: <JITTERBIT_HOME>/tomcat/drivers/lib/, replacing <JITTERBIT_HOME> with your private agent root directory. Your private agent root directory is usually in one of these default locations:

    • Windows (Harmony): C:\Program Files (x86)\Jitterbit Agent\
    • Windows (v5.x): C:\Program Files (x86)\Jitterbit Integration Server\
    • Linux: /opt/jitterbit


    You may also have JAR files located in <JITTERBIT_HOME>/tomcat/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/lib/; however, this directory may be overwritten if you upgrade your private agent. Instead, we recommend placing any drivers you install in <JITTERBIT_HOME>/tomcat/drivers/lib/.

  4. Add the following lines to JdbcDrivers.conf file in your Jitterbit Home directory:

<Name>Progress OpenEdge</Name>


  • Restart Jitterbit service by running StartServices.bat in your Jitterbit Home directory

  • Go to Jitterbit Studio and create a new data source:

    • Pick Progress OpenEdge [JDBC]
    • Enter your credentials
    • Provide the following connection string by providing the appropriate host, port and database name


  • Test your connection

Upon successful connection, you should be able to view the tables and views while you create your operations
