How to setup JDBC connection to BW using tSAPBWInput

Hi,  We are trying to use Talend to connect to our SAP BW system, but I am confused about:
"copy the jar file under the class path". Do we setup anything on the Class Variable side?
Can anyone share some lights on how exactly we can complete this step. Many thanks in advance.

Hi,
Could you please take a look at document about:TalendHelpCenter:Install external modules?
Have you tried to install your -activation.jar, -commons-codec.jar, -jdbc4olap.jar, -saaj-api.jar and -saaj-impl.jar files into studio from modules view manually to see if it works?

Hi Sabrina,
Thank you for your response. However, I installed these jar files in modules view, but I would still get the same error. Please assist.
Database connection is failed.

Hi,
On which build version you got this issue? 6.1? Have you ever successfully execute any job in your studio before? Could you please show us your current job design screenshot?
Best regards
