very perplexing connection problem

I have a very strange problem with some code. The code is as follows:
<font size=+1>

</font>
The method that calls this has code that goes through the List and prints out what is in it. When the code runs, the only statement that appears inside the list is "before connection." If I put the return connection from the getConnection method in a finally block, then I get connection is null. That makes it appear that an exception is being thrown. Now here is the tricky part. The code that calls this method catches all exceptions and prints them out. It is not catching any exceptions. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

It appears that I may have a rights issue with the database. I placed a try/catch block around connection = getConnection() and added the exception to my List. It appears that it is not recognizing the login password as valid. If I find anything else, I will post it here so that others may learn from my mistakes.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
