Installing ODBC and JDBC Drivers on Your Portal

Before you can integrate SQL data into your SAP Enterprise Portal (SAP EP), you will need to install either an ODBC or a JDBC driver, or both, on your portal server (or servers). If you are using SAP EP 6.0, you will install a JDBC driver, since SAP EP 6.0 no longer supports the ODBC and ASP/.NET technologies. If you are running SAP EP 5.0, you will want to install both the ODBC and JDBC drivers for maximum flexibility.
