Error Adding DB Connection in Talend Open Studio 5.1.1

There is a bug in Talend Open Studio for Data Integration version 5.1.1 when adding a database connection.  It has to do with the jdts component used for Microsoft SQL Server connections.  When adding a new connection you may get one of the following errors:

java.lang.ClassCastException: net.sourceforge.jdts.jdbc.CnnectionJDBC3 cannot be cast to net.sourceforge.jdts.jdbc.CnnectionJDBC2

The above error usually appears the first time you hit the button to “Check” the connection.  The second and subsequent attempts will produce a different error message as follows:

Impossible to initialize the connection !

This is a bug in Talend Open Studio for Data Integration that has a fix already implemented in the future 5.1.2 version.

See details of this bug at:  TDI-21382 SQL Server Connexion Fail

Update on 3/5/2013: The Impossible to Initialize the Connection error has been corrected in a future version.  Check out Talend Impossible to Initialize the Connection.
