The standard install of GoAnywhere does not ship the driver for Pro/5 Database, however, you can manually install the JDBC driver. Follow the instructions below to install the Pro/5 JDBC Driver:
  • Download the JDBC driver from
  • Copy the BBjJDBC.jar to the system where GoAnywhere is installed. The location to copy is GA_INSTALL_DIR/WebRoot/WEB-INF/lib.
  • Restart GoAnywhere Service/Subsystem
  • Log in to GoAnywhere
  • Add/Edit a Database Resource
  • In the JDBC Driver field, type com.basis.jdbc.BasisDriver
  • In the JDBC URL field, type jdbc:basis:<server>:<port>?database=<database_name>. Substiltute <server> with the host name or IP address of the Pro/5 database server. Substitute <port> with the port number on which the Pro/5 database server is listening. Substitute <database_name> with the database that you would like to connect. For configuring advanced options that the driver supports, use the JDBC URL Wizard helper tool.
  • Enter the database login in the User Name and Password fields.
  • Click on Test button to see if the database connection goes through.
Once the resource is setup, create projects using the resource to read/write data to the database.
