Remedy (AR system) - JDBC-ODBC

This is about the Remedy application (from AR System), which is a bug tracking tool.

When I made a normal JDBC-ODBC connection to the Remedy database, I bumped into a problem where I was able to connect to the database however I could not get the data since the ResultSet returned by the database was not of a proper type.

I tried to set the ResultSet type fetched
but to no avail. I could not read from the ResultSet.

Here is some more information on this issue.

The Remedy application has an ODBC system, which is a layer above the real databases (like Oracle, SQL Server etc.) and is supposed to provide database-independence to the application.

I tried to make connection to that obscure ODBC system using simple ODBC datasource configured through a native AR System driver given by the application.

This datasource works well with Microsoft products like Excel, VB etc., which makes the issue more depressing.

If any of you have found a roundabout/straight way of solving this issue, could you please share your knowledge with me?

Thanks much.
