I installed debian 2.2r2 with _all_ the postgres-packages, I created a database and
via psql I can do whatever I want with the DB. Now I'm trying to make a connection via
a Java-program. I downloaded the jdbc-6.5-1.2.jar file and renamed it to jdbc.jar and
moved it to ~/jdk1.3/lib, set the CLASSPATH to ~/jdk1.3/lib and used a program, found
in the Deitel&Deitel Java book.
After that, I tried to make a connection to the database I created (testing) and I
keep getting error-messages.
Can someone help me with this? I'm trying for 3 days now and still no luck.
--- program from Deitel & Deitel ---
public class TableDisplay extends JFrame
private Connection connection;
private JTable table;
String url = "jdbc:odbc:testing"; // I also tried with <String url =
String username = "postgres";
String password = "notentered";
connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username,
catch (ClassNotFoundException cnfex)
System.err.println("Failed to load the JDBC/ODBC driver.");
catch (SQLException sqlex)
System.err.println("Unable to connect to database.");
. . . . . . . . .
