Unable to fetch datasource for form model in AEM 6.3


Level 2


I was following Adobe Experience Manager Help | Create your first adaptive form​ link to learn about AEM forms.

I was successful in creating the Adaptive form, which id the Step 1 in this article.

But when I am trying to create form data model from the DataBase as the datasource, I am getting this:


Also I am getting this exception ;


I know that I have set up the Pooled Datasource configuration correctly because I am able to access the database from a JSP that I created to test it.

Someone please help me out on this as I am not able to rectify this problem.

Please make sure you install JDBC driver jar as bundle in OSGI console /system/console/bundles (make sure it's active) and then configure 'Apache Sling Connection Pooled DataSource' in /system/console/configMgr. Tested this on and it works fine.

But still it is not working out in the AEM Forms Data Model.

I am facing the same issue,

But restarting the  "AEM Forms Dermis Core" didn't work for me.

Is there something I might be missing?

here are the steps followed :

AEM version : 6.5

AEM forms package :


jdbc-driver osgi bundle is installed.

MYSQL is used for datasource .

when I try to create a data model using the datasource mentioned in the configuration.

still I get thie following error when the data model loads
