Created the following file (TestDB.java), in Eclipse:
I also added a database.properties file (using Eclipse):
Now, when I right mouse clicked on my project and went to 'Java Build Path', I added the following jar:
When I tried to run the program using "Run As Java Application", I got the following exception in the Console:
java.io.FileNotFoundException: database.properties (No such file or directory) at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method) at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(FileInputStream.java:106) at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(FileInputStream.java:66) at TestDB.getConnection(TestDB.java:78) at TestDB.runTest(TestDB.java:50) at TestDB.main(TestDB.java:22)
Why couldn't Eclipse detect this file? I created it in Eclipse, so I wonder why it couldn't find its location...
