When I do, the server comes up and tries to access the PostgreSQL db I have installed. Java then throws an error "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.postgresql.Driver
I tried adding the postgresql-9.0-801.jdbc4-1.0.jar to the classpath by putting a ":" between the above line and the path to that jar. That didn't work either. I also tried the -Ddrivers flag and pointed to the driver jar to no avail. This is code that worked on Windows and is now being migrated to Linux.
How do I get the PostgreSQL driver on the Linux classpath so this problem goes away? Thanks for your help.

It appears that the problem was not that the classpath was not finding org.postgresql.Driver. The real problem was that the name of the database changed. Once I updated the connection to point to the right DB name, everything works.
