Can I pass username & password in JDBC URL in Crystal Reports 2008?

Hi,

I tried to put this URL in the CRConfig.xml file : jdbc:postgresql://hostname:5432/db_name?user=user_name&password=pw

Without the user and password parameters, it works fine but I always have to enter the database information when I create a new report or refresh an existing report.

With the parameters, when I create a new report, if I click on "Create new connection", Crystal Reports freezes. If I click on the connection in "My connections", then I get an "Invalid argument" error message.

How can I configure the database information so that I don't always need to enter it manually?

Thanks,

Marianne
