BO XI 2 SP1 RAS- Error while setting table location (using JDBC- MSSQL)


I am using BO XI2 SP1 RAS (managed report) API, I am trying to modify ReportDocument's database info and parameters RUNTIME.

I am getting following error Failed to open the connection.

Failed to open the connection.

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\{00F396A0-966B-41F5-8925-55632CCC94A1}.rpt---- Error code:-2147482892 Error code name:failed

what does above error means and I am getting errror on the line databaseController.setTableLocation(originalTable, newTable);

Is anybody having Sample Code RAS with JDBC - what all property needs to be set with RAS API?, please let me know.
