Hi Mridula,
This is rather BIRT question that RTC. You can find on stackoverflow how to set datasource: Getting it should be similar.

Anyway I am a little worried about your test case. What is the reason that you want to fetch BIRT snapshots programatically instead of using existing reporting solutions (BIRT, JRS, RRDI or Insight)?

What is the driver class I should use for the jazz data source...connection string all? 
I want to extract the information provided by the snapshots.

If you want to build a Java application to has reporting capability, you probably need to build it on top of the BIRT framework and RTC. Once you have both installed in the same Eclipse shell, you should create a new BIRT data source of the type "Jazz Data Source" to access the snapshots.

If you just need access to the data, I would recommend using JDBC to connect to the data warehouse and SQL for the queries.
