Driver Missing

I'm seeing the following message when running a Java application:
NO_SUITABLE_DRIVER Unable to load DAMessages
Isn't the error message saying that I'm missing a class called in the package ResourceBundle?

I'm pretty sure that's not what the error message means. If a class could not be found, you'd get a ClassNotFoundException.
I would guess that the line of code causing the problem is trying to get a Connection from a DriverManager, but a suitable JDBC driver hasn't been loaded yet.
I doubt that helps much. It might help others to help you if you were to post a bit more of the text from the error message you're receiving, as well as any code you feel may well be relevant.
Good Luck

The Packagename is:
The classname seems to be:
But this driver is:
Unable to load DAMessages
Because it is a:

There are lot's of NO_SUITABLE_DRIVER (for instance: wrong version, oracle-driver for postgresql-database, no driver at all...)
I don't know DAMessages - perhaps someone else might help you there.
