Java Classpath for Crystral Reports 10

Experts, I hope you can help me out.  I'm not a programmer, just an enduser trying to set up a JDBC database connection to an IBM DB2 v8 database through Crystal Reports 10 professional.

The instructions in the manual I'm following require an INI file to point to the jar files, drivers, etc. for Crystal Reports to reference.
https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/50b9dd07-951e-2b10-9c81-bc5d082230b0

After setting up the file and trying to select set up JDBC in Crystal Reports, I'm receiving the following error:  "Invalid argument details: Java Server Start up failure.  Please verify path, classpath, and IORFIleLocation in the ini file."

I went back and checked my typing and spelling, and cut and pasted each path into a URL line to insure I have the file locations and names typed right.   I also loaded the IBM DB2 driver (db2.jcc.DB2Driver).  Since I have 2 versions of Java on my laptop, I qualified the location of the j2rel.4.2_19\bin file.

I don't know what else to check or even where to look for errors.

Can you please look over the code below to see if I have the syntex correct or tell me what else to check or where to look for my error?

Thank you,
Steph M

OK, I've no experience with this, so this is something of a guess, but it looks like there should be a ; at the end of line 5.  You need ;'s to separate each element and you don't have one there.

 It's also possible that everything after the = should be on one long line.  IOW, what you show as lines 3 - 8 should be one line.  Maybe.  I really don't know.  It just occurs to me that it's a possibility.  It's a question of whether whatever reads this will recognize values extended over multiple lines, or if it expects them all to be on one line.  If you still have problems after adding the ; to line 5, you could try combining those into one long line.

The short story: as it turns out, hitting the database directly for reporting violates our license agreement so I won't need the code after all.

Thanks fo taking time to response.
