The problem is that you are using current development code with instructions that are written for 7.1.
You can either get the 7.1 jdbc drivers which should work according to the documentation you are using, or you can use the 'compatible' parameter to set the behavior in the 7.2 driver back to what it was in 7.1. I haven't yet updated the docs for the changes put in place in the 7.2 code. thanks, --Barry [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: > > I'm a getting a bit flustered with my old friend Postgresql.
