I have Universe Designer 188.8.131.521. From browsing the web it seems there should be a JDBC option in Tools | Connections but I don't see it. I have 15 different data source options there starting with "Business Objects" and ending with "Teradata Corporation". There is a "Generic" option but only ODBC underneath. How do I make a JDBC option available? (I've attached a screenshot)

Based on the link you posted Ravi I see that I do not have the Install drive:\BusinessObjectsEnterprise\common\4.0\java\lib\MetadataEngineTestslib directory or the Install drive:\BusinessObjectsEnterprise\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc directory. For example, under the "connection server" directory I only have the "odbc" and "oracle" subdirectories. Based on what Andreas posted, can you say that JDBC wasn't available before SP4 and that SP4 introduced it?
I do have Java installed on the server....
