Unexpected database connector error, error code -2147467259...

I am using CR4E 2 against an Oracle 10g db, invoking CR XI reports. Several of them have recently been getting an "unexpected database connector error. I cannot tell why I am getting this error; the jsp works for almost all the reports in the system, which posts an htp request to the jsp that contains the report filename and the parameters and data for the report file.

My question: What could cause this error, and what would prevent it?

The jsp code is below:

<%@page import="com.businessobjects.samples.CRJavaHelper,,,,*,
	try {

		Object reportSource = null;

		String reportDesc = null;
		String reportFileName = null;

		if (!"CrystalViewer".equals(request.getParameter("CrystalEventTarget")) && !"CrystalViewer".equals(request.getParameter("CRVEventTarget")))
		    {//******************** Not postback; i.e. initial invocation from Maximo *************************
			//System.out.println("====== First pass - pre-postback ==========================");

			reportFileName = request.getParameter("reportFile").toString();
			session.setAttribute("reportFileName", reportFileName);

			ReportClientDocument clientDoc;
			clientDoc = new ReportClientDocument();,OpenReportOptions._openAsReadOnly);
			//** log on to db - does it need to be done in common code?
			// ****** BEGIN LOGON TO DATASOURCE ****************  
				String driverName = "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver";
				String JNDIName = "";
				String user_name = application.getInitParameter("user_name");

				String pw = application.getInitParameter("pw");

				String server_name = application.getInitParameter("server_name");
				String db_name = application.getInitParameter("db_name");

				String connectString = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@"	+ server_name.toString() 
				        				+ ":1521:" + db_name.toString();
				//Switch all tables on the main  and sub-report.  
				CRJavaHelper.changeDataSource(clientDoc, user_name, pw,	connectString, driverName, JNDIName);

				// logon to database
				CRJavaHelper.logonDataSource(clientDoc, user_name, pw);
			// ****** END LOGON TO DATASOURCE **************** 		
			Iterator myIter = clientDoc.getDataDefController().getDataDefinition().getParameterFields().iterator();
			Field myField = null;
			String RptParamName = null;
			String ParamValue = null;
			while (myIter.hasNext()) {
				myField = (Field);

				RptParamName = myField.getName();
				//System.out.println("RptParam: " + RptParamName);
				//Is this parameter in the list? 
				if (request.getParameter(RptParamName) != null) {
					ParamValue = ((String) request.getParameter(RptParamName));
					// passes multiple values in the format value1,=value2,=valueN,...
					//so for an IN statement to work, the values should be in the format
					if (ParamValue.indexOf(",=") != -1)
						ParamValue = "(" + ParamValue + ")";
					CRJavaHelper.addDiscreteParameterValue(clientDoc,"",RptParamName, ParamValue);
			} //end While			
			//System.out.println("====== connected parms ==========================");

			//** reportsource
			reportSource = clientDoc.getReportSource();
			session.setAttribute("ReportSource", reportSource);

			//** clean up

			//System.out.println("====== end of init logic (non-postback) ==========================");

		} else {//******************* postback *****************************************************************************

			reportFileName = session.getAttribute("reportFileName").toString();

			reportSource = session.getAttribute("ReportSource");
		//********************************* end init vs. postback logic **************************************
		//********************************* begin common code           **************************************


			// >> Create the CrystalReportViewer object
			CrystalReportViewer crystalReportPageViewer = new CrystalReportViewer();

			// set viewer attributes; this is where PDF vs. ActiveX would be set as well


			// Apply the viewer preference attributes

			// Process the report
			crystalReportPageViewer.processHttpRequest(request,response, application, null);

	} catch (ReportSDKExceptionBase e) {

Please ensure that you have upgraded to Service Pack 4. There was a bug related to Unexpected Database Connector error that was resolved in the latest service pack release this February.
