I am using PointBase database.But DriverManager.getConnection(String url,String username,String password) alreays throws SQLException stating that "no suitable drivers" at run time. I put all the property info in a properties file and this file will be read and passed to getConnection() of DriverManager.The driver I used is "com.pointbase.jdbc.jdbcDriver".Why is there this exception? Please help!

re you sure that is the right driver? Most class names start with a capital letter.
