Re: SQL database connectivity issue (Thing [DatabaseController] is not running)

Thing not running would refer to this entity itself not the database you are trying to connect to.

Try doing disable / save / enable / save see if that helps at all.

Re: SQL database connectivity issue (Thing [DatabaseController] is not running)

Thanks for reply , I am unable to see any option like enable or disable the thing. would you explain little more .

shared screenshot , plz check it.

 

thanks

Re: SQL database connectivity issue (Thing [DatabaseController] is not running)

yes , i got the services enablething and disablething , executed . but still having same issue

Re: SQL database connectivity issue (Thing [DatabaseController] is not running)

It's just the checkbox on the General tab of the Entity.

 

I'm assuming your Database Thing is called DatabaseController?

 

If after an disable save enable save it still gives the same message, then likely something got corrupted?

Hi , 

I am using Thingworx Manufacturing Apps , trial version with 3 months , i didn't get Tomcat here can i install seperately and configure it with thingworx? if yes how?? in tomcat we need to add jdbc jar file , So need it

thanks

Re: SQL database connectivity issue (Thing [DatabaseController] is not running)

Tomcat is installed. 

the JDBC jar file, usually we install those with an extension.

Else they would go into the <thingworx>/WEB-INF folder

 

this might help for the jdbc.jar
