Subject apparent interclient error
I am whipping up a new app and the whips have turned against me!

I am using a lot of new (to me) technology and have encountered the

There was 1 error:
1) testConnection(gscc.objectsTest.DBTestInterbase)
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: sun/io/ByteToCharConverter

This is ant invoking java running my app using junit and log4j and
interclient (and each of those whips has barbs on em). The problem
happens in my code when I invoke:

_dbCon = DriverManager.getConnection (_con, aUser, aPassword);

I am using jdk1.3.1 and InterServer-1.60

It appears as if my byte code is funny. This happened yesterday with
an older version of interServer so I think it is within my domain and
not the recent download of InterServer-1.60.

Any thoughts welcomed.

safely, in Ireland.)
