Description Richard Broersma Jr. 2013-05-23 11:35:43 UTC
As the subject line describes I'm trying to connect to Heroku PostgreSQL via JDBC and ODBC.

However, the required connection string using JDBC yields the following error message:

SQL Status: 08006

SSL error: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Connecting via ODBC works.  However, for some reason, only the public schema shows.  Other schema are not listed.

Here a few details about my system:
LO: Version (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2))
OS: Ubuntu 13.04
java version "1.7.0_21"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.9) (7u21-2.3.9-1ubuntu1)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

Any thoughts?

Lionel - looks like another tricky one for you to look into?

Well, if Heroku PostgreSQL requires SSL, then enable SSL in the JDBC driver... If the JDBC driver does not support SSL, then I don't see how that is LibreOffice's bug.

As to ODBC, well, maybe your user only has permission to the public schema? Or try setting the PostgreSQL schema path in a "connection command" in the ODBC driver.

You could also try LibreOffice's native PostgreSQL driver.
