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 ---

import java.util.*;

public class TableDisplay extends JFrame
        private Connection connection;
        private JTable table;
        public TableDisplay()
                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.");
. . . . . . . . .

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
    (send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to [EMAIL PROTECTED])
