Teradata Java UDF

I have a java udf that basically just does a bunch of shows on each and every procedure and macro and then inserts those into a table. The jar is installed and my definition for the procedure is below. The problem i'm getting is i keep getting the error:
Executed as Single statement.  Failed [7825 : 38000] in UDF/XSP/UDM database.doWork: SQLSTATE 38U01: No suitable driver found for jdbc:default:connection
Elapsed time = 00:00:03.323
STATEMENT 1: Select Statement failed.
My definition for the procedure is:

EXTERNAL NAME 'JarUDF2:fLoadRequestText2.doWork';

And my java code is:

the method for the connection was taken from the SQL External Routine Programming PDF on page 283.

it also says here to do the same thing:

Java External Stored Procedures
The Java External Stored Procedure (XSP) portion of the ANSI SQL standard is provided by Teradata Database 12.0 or later, when used in conjunction with the Teradata JDBC Driver 12.0 or later. This includes the SQLJ database and tables, jar file installation, Java XSP definition, and Java XSP access to the JDBC default connection.
For more information, refer to SQL External Routine Programming.
Use Java XSPs in the following manner:

  • Compile the Java source outside of the database and place the resulting class or classes (the byte code) in a jar file
    Note:  Teradata Database 12.0 and 13.0 do not support Java Stored Procedures compiled with JDK 6.0. Only Java Stored Procedures compiled with JDK 1.4.2 or JDK 5.0 are supported.
  • Register the resulting jar file with the database by calling an XSP named SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR
  • Create the JAVA XSP with its EXTERNAL NAME clause specifying the jar file and associated Java class

Once created, access the Java routine in the same manner as any XSP. Java XSPs can execute SQL code using the standard JDBC driver interface. Since the stored procedure is running on the database and is invoked from within a logged-on session, a connection URL of jdbc:default:connection should be used.

First, this forum thread title is incorrect. This is not a Java UDF, this is a Java Stored Procedure.
JDBC/SQL access is supported for Java Stored Procedures, but is not supported for Java UDFs.
Since you have a Java Stored Procedure, you should be able to use the JDBC default connection for SQL access.
Some points:
- Don't do Class.forName on "com.teradata.jdbc.TeraDriver" in a Java Stored Procedure, because it's not needed.
- You are using multiple threads in your Java Stored Procedure. That's not recommended because you may interfere with the Teradata Database's workload management.
- You are using the TMODE connection parameter with the JDBC default connection, but that is not supported. The JDBC default connection inherits all the session attributes of the caller's session, and the session's transaction mode cannot be changed.
Here on Developer Exchange, we provide sample Java Stored Procedures, and sample programs to install them and call them.
If you haven't already done so, please download them and test them in your environment to verify whether they work for you.
