JDBC Data Source menu doesn't exist in IDEA CE


I've just download IDEA 11.1.1 community edition to develop apps in Java + CUBRID Database. To work with CUBRID, I need to add its JDBC driver.

According to IDEA documentation, I can add the JDBC Data Source from DB Data Source Properties (View > Tool Windows > Data Source). However Data Source menu item doesn't exist in "Tool Windows".

So I suppose Data Source feature is not in Community Edition, is it? Can anyone point me to how I can add the JDBC driver?

The data sources functionality is indeed not available in the Community Edition. However, this in no way prevents you from writing applications that use JDBC. Simply add the JDBC driver as a library to your module.
