NiFi JDBC Connection Error using NetSuite Drivers


NiFi JDBC Connection Error using NetSuite Drivers

New Contributor

Hi all,


I'm getting an error when attempting to connect to NetSuite (SuiteAnalytics Connect service) via JDBC using the drivers they provide:

java.lang.AbstractMethodError: Method com/netsuite/jdbc/oabase/BaseConnection40.isValid(I)Z is abstract


I'm currently using the same drivers to connect successfully using DBeaver.

The connection URL, driver class, username and password set in the DBCPConnectionPool are all correct, since these have been set per the instructions NetSuite provides for using their drivers, and are also working successfully in DBeaver. Full details are at the bottom of the post.

Some googling suggests that a method is being called that doesn't exist, having been removed in a previous version of Java; in which case it could be a problem with NetSuite's drivers. I've already lodged a support ticket with them to look into the issue.

Does anyone know if there might be something I'm doing wrong with my configuration, or anything else? Or perhaps you have some advice for a workaround? Thanks in advance.
