Hi, I use postgresql database,usually I just add postgresql.jar file in classpath at VisualAge. but in Studio,after I add a classpath variable of the postgresql.jar file, the Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver"); still can't found the Driver. So anybody can help me about that? thanks Jenny

I am having a similar problem in WSAD but with Oracle. I'm trying to modify an application which uses (and finds) the PostgreSQL to use Oracle instead and am getting ClassNotFoundException at Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver").newInstance(); I have added classes12.zip to the project's list of libraries, where postgresql.jar is also listed. If I set it up to run the PostregSQL driver it finds it but it does not find the Oracle driver.
I got my program with the problem similar to yours (Oracle not PostgreSQL) to work in WSAD with both Websphere Test Environment and Tomcat by adding the JDBC driver jar to the class path of the server instance as an external jar. Hope this helps.

WTE class loader is not the same as WSAD WAS test environment. Make sure the JDBC drivers are in the right order for the class loader
