I'm working w/Eclipse and currently have in my "RUN" config [under the argument tab] the following line.


This is great if I want to only run 1 database. I have 2 that I need to use. Does anyone know how I can cofigure my eclipse to accept 2 jdbc drivers for 2 databases?

I believe the command line option you list is more of a convenience option than a requirement. You can leave it off altogether, add both jars to the classpath, and then in the code registrar which jdbc driver you want to use during runtime.

That will work, assuming there is a driver for that url in your classpath.

Here's what I'm trying...

Here's the method...

The problem is that the class that I'm registering does NOT extend the Driver class that the driver manager wants it cast to.

Any suggestions?...
I agree. Here's the link:
