This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
What do you mean by "loading the jdbc driver programatically"? It needs to be loaded somehow. You can avoid having the driver name and url in the code by passing them as properties on the command line, or keeping them in a properties file.
It has Name-Value pair...Now you can add as many databases types repeating the above four lines for each driver ...and that won't affect your application...also I actually wanted to put the System.setProperty() in a static block....but again ...i'll try that out.
