Hi Rafael,
From the error it looks like the SQL server driver cannot be loaded to make a connection to the DW database.
Check the IC, point 6 about configuring your server env and SQL server driver:
Hope that helps

Thx for your help Sandy

If i do a BIRT report from the DW the report works fine, but the trouble is that im trying to make a conection to another independent DB in other server,

im using a BIRT JDBC Data Source and in my PC works fine,

When i excecute the report on server im getting the error.

once again, thx for your help

You can check for a few things:
1. SQL server jdbc driver is set as per IC link above.
2. Create a dir: <Jazz_install_dir>/server/sqlserver and put the jars in there and re-start the server.
3. I also found a technote that explains where to put the jars to be made available specifically for Birt.
