Description Thomas Schweikle 2007-09-12 10:00:01 UTC
Description of problem:
trying to use postgresql-jdbc-Driver "org.postgresql.Driver" does give 
back an error message "Driver not found".


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
postgresql-jdbc-8.2.504-1jpp.fc7


How reproducible:
Everytime


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install some java application using postgresql-jdbc.
2. Start the application.
3. Depending on the applications error handling you will see an error 
message or a trap, telling "org.postgresql.Driver" was not found.

Setting the classpath to point to "postgresql-jdbc.jar" or the file this 
link points to does not help.
  
Actual results:
The driver "org.postgresql.Driver" not found.


Expected results:
The driver "org.postgresql.Driver" should be found and loaded.


Additional info:
This is something rendering postgresql unusable with java applications.

Comment 1 Thomas Schweikle 2008-04-06 08:59:12 UTC
Could we close this, since there are updated packages available for Fedora 7 
java which solve this issue.
